ANWR: The Big Lie

Regarding ANWR: a new pipeline across Alaska isn't required since the location for drilling in ANWR is about 160 miles from the North Slope Prudhoe Bay pipeline where it would be connected.

Second, the wildlife love the pipeline since it is heated and provides a shelter during the worst times during the winter.  Maybe another question 
should be asked.

 FIRST do you know what ANWR is?
ANWR is the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Now a comparison
and some perspective

(it's in the "ANWR Coastal Plain")

This is what the Democrats, liberals, Progressives, and "Green" 
show you when they talk about ANWR -
and they are right. These are photographs of ANWR:

Isn't it beautiful? "Why should we drill here (and destroy) this beautiful place?" they ask.


In fact, it's a deliberate lie. Do you remember the map? The map showed that the proposed drilling area is in the ANWR coastal plain. Do the photographs, above, look like a coastal plain to you?

What's going on here? The answer is simple - if you know what the coastal plain really is, you won't oppose the exploration for oil ... and they know it.

This is what the proposed exploration area
ACTUALLY looks like in the winter:

And this is what it ACTUALLY looks like
in the summer:

Here's a screen shot from Google Earth:


As you can see, the area where they are talking about drilling is a barren wasteland. Brackish swamp and tundra. Oh, and they say that they are concerned about the effect on the local wildlife.

Yeah, right.

Here is a summer photo of the poor, "depleted wildlife" situation created by drilling around Prudhoe Bay. Don’t you think that the caribou really hate that drilling?

Here's that same spot during the winter:

Hey, this bear seems to really HATE the pipeline near
Prudhoe Bay:

*The Prudhoe Bay oilfield accounts for 17% of  U.S.  Domestic oil production

Now, why do you think that the Democrats are lying about ANWR? Remember when Al Gore said that the government should work to artificially raise gas prices to $5.00 a gallon?

Well, Al Gore, the enviro-weenies and the Democrats nearly reached their goal.

But now that you know that they're lying, what are you going to do about it?

Ignore all you subsistence hunting aborigines who are too uneducated to know what is good for you.

Guffaw in AZ said...

I'm shocked, SHOCKED!
What maroons these greenies be!

Brought to you by the same folks who don't want us drilling off our own shores - but allow Brazil to...
For the benefit of George Soros.


Rev. Paul said...

WSF - you're right; how dare we insist on controlling our own property.

Guffaw - it always comes down to money & power, doesn't it?

Rob said...

Padre, we should all know that the above named people lie, why?? Because their are very little people living in that area to dispute that claim. beside look who is the biggest lair in D,C,

Rev. Paul said...

Yes, Rob, that's true. And if the fedgov allows BP/Shell/Conoco Phillips/whoever to drill there, it'll be tougher to give ANWR to the Chinese as part of our debt payment.

Can't do anything more than I already do and that's fighting anything Femocrats want :)

Cause we can't legally shoot em....yet.

Tewshooz said...

Lying is what these leftist progressive commies do, don't ya know. They just know that we are all too stupid to notice.
Pathetic bastards

Rev. Paul said...

Preppy, I sincerely hope it never comes to that - but it won't surprise me much if it does.

Tewshooz, it's their nature to lie; the truth is not in them.

Cathy said...

This was a very informative post.
Thank you.
As for the motivations of those on the left:
Dark. Very Dark.

Rev. Paul said...

You're welcome, Cathy. And as to your second point: yes, indeed.

I just wonder what the bear is doing up on the pipeline? Those carabu look real upset at the drilling

Rev. Paul said...

Corey, given the way the pipeline runs underground except where elevated to avoid melting the permafrost, I'd guess the bear climbed up & is looking for a way off. :)

And yeah, the caribou herd is now several times larger than it used to be. Seems the pipeline doesn't bother them at all.

The Democrats and Republicans, can not even pass a balanced a budget each year; without threating to shut down the government, and other city offices for an undisclosed amount of time.
How can we trust anyone on the Hill, including the liberals, to do what's right for the American people? Especially since they haven't done that in such a long time.
My husband worked for the civil service, after he retired from the Air force. For three years he wasn't given any kind of raise, or promotion, and let's not forget the time that was taken away from him and his fellow workers without pay...so the government could balance their budget. I felt like they were taking too much from the civil workers...and didn't even care what families were going through.
I learned a lot the first three years we lived here.

Rev. Paul said...

Welcome, Beth. I agree with everything you've said. The short answer is, we can't trust them: they haven't been trustworthy in a very long time.

Sandy said...

Rev. Paul,

We can't trust any of them!
Great post my friend.
