Re: [GreenYes] Artic National Wildlife Refuge Demise
I would like to add that while ANWR Oil would offer another source of oil,
it would still be a finite resoure which is non-renewable.  However in the
rush to find just a little (on the global scale) more oil we would despoil
another or many more pristine areas, this must be unacceptable.  I am in the
age range that was sent letters telling us we could not leave the country,
presumably because of the potential for bringing back the draft.  My
childhood friends also served in the Gulf War and now suffer quite probably
from our own irradiated bullets, pollutants from burning oil rigs,
innoculations for protection from chemical weapons, or Iraqi weaponry.  And
in the end this helped us how?

Until we focus on renewable fuels to solve our energy needs, countless more
people will invariably die in the fight to provide more polluting fuels and
increase the speed of global warming.  It's time to permanantly protect
pristines ecosystems and find alternatives for our fuel needs.  My 2 cents.

For environmental and social justice,
Timothy J.W. Logan
