Alaska's Governor Supports Drilling in ANWR, OCS
Gov. Palin strongly supports opening ANWR to oil and gas development as well as environmentally responsible development of the outer continental shelf (OCS). ANWR and OCS are headline news across the nation now due to the record level prices of oil and gasoline.
ANWR production will benefit the nation with long-term jobs in all 50 states for services and infrastructure construction and maintenance. Federal taxes from oil production totally over 200 billion dollars would be used to fund alternative energies and future energy development for over 3 decades to come. ANWR oil is worth $1.3 trillion to the nation at today’s prices.
MP: How about we let the people of Alaska decide? 75% of Alaskans support exploration and production in ANWR.
