Palin Plan to Open Up Artic Wildlife Refuge to Big Oil Exploration

Sarah Palin has a plan for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge which she is circulating on Twitter and Facebook. Palin's vision involves drill pads and pipelines, oil spills and air pollution... and pools of toxic waste.

In Palin’s world, the answer to the appalling disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is to "drill baby drill" in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Help us rein in Palin and her Big Oil allies: demand that the Obama administration protect the Arctic Refuge. Send a letter speaking out against Sarah Palin's Arctic drilling plans today.

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is an international treasure. Caribou, muskoxen and moose, wolves and wolverines, foxes and grizzlies, and millions of migratory birds live in this wild place. If it were in the lower 48 states, a landscape as magnificent as the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge would be as revered as Yellowstone or Yosemite.

The Refuge is a crown jewel of America's public lands. Help us keep this wilderness free of oil rigs and oil spills.
Sarah Palin claims that onshore drilling is "safe" - the same onshore drilling that led to an oil spill on the Trans-Alaska Pipeline just last week. There is no failsafe way to drill for oil, a lesson that the Gulf spill is driving home all too well.

Last week the Obama Administration kept the Arctic Ocean safe from a Gulf-style catastrophe by blocking offshore drilling in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas. Take action today: keep the last frontier safe from Sarah and her oil industry allies.

Thank you!
