A.N.W.R. Again

Same sorry argument from Sen. Stevens of Alaska. "It's a wasteland and not's not beautiful at all." Oil exploration in the arctic is a grimy mess. It happens all year round. So what's the payoff? For us not much. Kaktovik already has good schools, and only 300 permanant residents. They're for it, because for them it would be a goldmine, just like it would be for the oil companies. But for us, just a loss I'm afraid. The calving grounds, now heavily concentrated in the 1002 area, after the Prudhoe Bay development to the west, would have nowhere to go if this happens. They wander around pipelines and roads in general but they won't drop calves near them. For that they go to ANWR. Now anyway.
