A personal perspective on animal welfare

Arctic Drilling


President Bush called on Congress to lift a long-standing ban on U.S. offshore oil drilling. With global warming so apparent and urgent this is clearly bad. Alaska has been under long debate for years for open drilling. Although shot down by Congress numerous times, those in favor of domestic oil are getting closer to victory.

If you don’t get why this is a bad thing, just watch Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”. Global warming is a serious threat to our planet. Drilling in the Arctic would not guarantee to produce a drop of oil for at least 10+ years, while we should be exploring alternative fuels. Drilling will also destroy habitat for the animals, and this will for sure push them into extinction. And so on…

Call on Congress to oppose Big Oil and preserve wildlife. Take action today so you can help safeguard future generations and much of the wonder of our planet.
