We must decide for ourselves what and who to believe in this world
of instant communication and information saturation. Look at this
country as you drive freely from one end to the other and tell me
where the chaos is. The only chaos is in the newspapers of
propaganda that have overtaken the American news media.
Jobs. That's what grows the economy. Work.
That's what makes you content. We should be supporting plans to
expand our economy not curtail it. 70 years ago yes there was a huge
problem with pollution and excessive waste. A very strong and
committed environmental movement helped clean it up. The United
States government made laws to make sure it was crime to pollute to
those levels ever again.
Did we save the spotted owl?
you know? Many many people lost their job, their homes and whole
communities abandoned in order to save them. After all the expense
time and court proceedings most of us don't have any idea the status
of these birds.
The ice age began 100,000 years ago, or somewhere around then.
I remember my teacher telling us New York City used to be covered
with ice. The Great Lakes were formed by the receding ice. During
the following 99,000 years the earth produced massive volcanoes
forming tremendous tropical storms and giant hurricanes burning
forests and fields alike. Now today because we witness the
melting of the arctic ice shelf I'm expected to believe that the
exhaust from our factories and automobiles caused that to happen.
Come on man!
Heres what Wikipedia says: An ice age, or more precisely, a
glacial age, is a period of long-term reduction in the
temperature of the
surface and atmosphere, resulting in the presence or expansion of
continental and polar
ice sheets and alpine
glaciers. Within a long-term ice age, individual pulses of cold
climate are termed "glacial
periods" (or alternatively "glacials" or "glaciations" or
colloquially as "ice age"), and intermittent warm periods are called
Glaciologically, ice age implies the presence of
ice sheets in the northern and southern hemispheres.
By this definition, we are still in the ice age that began 2.6
million years ago at the start of the
Pleistocene epoch, because the
Antarctic ice sheets still exist.[2
There is no reason for the us
to stop exploration in the Arctic. lawyers with an extreme position
dominate the environmental debat. They will and they do hamper
growth in Alaska. Their 'world of awareness'
places this country in peril. If these people are so
concerned about the 'world' why aren't they in China or Russia or
Southeast Asia where the same type of industrial contamination we
confronted 50 years ago is going at 200% rate over there, right now.
Real pictures of Northern Alaska.
If you see a movie or TV show with
people standing around in ANWAR and they aren't either completely
covered with bugs (white socks, mosquitoes, gnats black flies) or if
they're not completely insulated with arctic gear they’re not in the
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
constituents’ know this is possible. Oil could be pumped through the
Trans-Alaska Pipeline with-in a much shorter period of time then
pundits will tell you. We must stop listening to overly paranoid
environmentalists. Where is the environmental destruction all of Alaska's 580,000 square miles of territory?
The United States government owns 1/3 of it. Our own regulators
prevent oil and gas development in Alaska.
Senator Read. How many more years
do we keep the middle east wealthy? Why not get the oil right here?
Spend the profit. to develop alternative energies, It's what
Uncle Ted said. Why not? Remember when Ted Stevens was a Senator?
The State of Alaska was booming. Now the United States Government is
strangling the progress. Some would say Alaska gets way more federal
dollars then it should. But don't forget the federal government owns
more than 60% of Alaska. They bring in the regulations, they make
you and me pay for it.
