Vote against any attempt to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling

'Energy Week': Wasting Time, and Energy, on Dead-End Schemes
"Bad ideas never die." That's a famous Washington, D.C., adage whose sorry truth is on display again. The House of Representatives is using rising gasoline prices as an excuse to dredge up its dirty, destructive energy bill for another series of votes, including a renewed effort attempt to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling.

The package of legislation that's on the schedule for next week, H.R. 6, would pave the way for drilling and mining on our most special public lands, from the Arctic to the Otero Mesa of New Mexico and the Red Desert of Wyoming. At the same time, it would roll back environmental safeguards that protect our air, water, land and health. And it won't do a thing to bring gas prices down.

Please Call Your Representative Before Tuesday!

The bankrupt energy bill could be before the House of Representatives as early as Tuesday, June 15. Please call your congressional representative with this simple message: vote against the dirty, dangerous energy bill and against any attempt to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.

The Capitol Switchboard, at 202-224-3121, will connect you to your Representative's office. You can look up who your Representative is at:

Talking Points:
Calling your representative's office is painless, quick and easy and our message here is a very simple one. Just ask for the staff person handling energy issues. After identifying yourself, ask that your representative to vote against the energy bill when it comes to the floor, and to vote against any attempt to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for drilling. If the staff person seems amenable to a longer call, you can also make these additional points:

- Drilling in the Arctic will do nothing to reduce gasoline prices, but will ruin a wild and pristine place for a few months' worth of oil consumers won't see for a decade or more.

- These bills have nothing to do with helping consumers at the pump; they have everything to do with political and electoral posturing.

- This cynical, pointless game only wastes time on dead-end schemes when legislators should be insisting on solutions that would actually make a difference and set us on course to a sustainable new energy future.
