Thoughts on ANWR

Wondering about whether drilling in ANWR would really be worth the ecological mess it might create? I was e-mailed these images by a friend:







Beautiful ANWR:







Where they want to drill:









Animals really hate it, huh?







Update:
Newt Gingrich delivers petition with 1.3 million signatures to Congress demanding "Drill Now."

Oh, G.P., you know I love creation! Also, I have always wanted to visit Alaska (so beautiful)... However, I want to DRILL!

Good for you! :) Really, modern oil-drilling does very little damage to the environment. In fact, there are some off-shore drilling installations that are benefitting the evironment, by acting as artificial reefs!

You know, even though I really do love and care for creation, I feel like I can't call myself an environmetalist. It just seems like the word is for tree-hugging peta people, which I am not. They are so unbalanced in their view and they think that people like me don't even care about creation at all. It really is fusturating.

I think of myself as a "conservationist." I want to conserve the enviornment, but I don't believe that it is more important than people are.

Ok. I just read an article about environmentalist vs. Conservationist. I am a conservatinist too! ;) I thought the words were interchangeable, but they aren't supposed to be!

I don't know how to give you a clicky to the article I read, but you probably already know about what it says anyway...
