Sarah Palin, The Governor Of Alaska, On ANWR

One would think that the governor of Alaska would have a big say in the question of whether to drill in ANWR, right? I hope so:

What will it take for Congress to enact comprehensive energy policy that includes increased domestic production of oil and gas, renewable and alternative energy, and conservation? It seems to us outside of the Capital Beltway that virtually every effort to accomplish this is met with criticism and failure.

In my opinion, the debate about energy policy is no longer theoretical or abstract. Our failure to enact an energy policy is having real consequences for every American in their daily lives and has begun to affect America's place in the world. Alaska is ready, willing, and able to assist the nation in addressing our acute and expanding energy needs. Like many other states, we would like the opportunity to help.

Congressional approval of responsible petroleum development in the coastal plain of Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) - the most promising unexplored petroleum province in North America - would be of incalculable benefit to my state and our nation.

Should the governor of a state have to beg for permission to tap into an abundant resource in there own state? Read the whole post. It is like she is begging.

Call your representatives, let them know how you feel. For contact info go to the sidebar, type in your zip, and then let them have it.
