More Answers for the ANWR Worry-Warts:

Critics of plans to tap oil supplies in ANWR also worry about possible pollution, but a 1999 Clinton administration report, referred to on the Committee’s site, says that oil can be produced safely in the artic and with actual environmental benefits. Committee Chair Richard Pombo (R-Calif.) notes that the U.S. has better technology and tougher environmental standards than the foreign oil providers on which we currently rely.

And to those who contend that ANWR’s oil supply will run out in six months, the Committee cites the Energy Information Administration’s claim that ANWR would produce 1 million barrels a day for over 30 years, which “would replace roughly 30 years of Saudi Arabian oil imports.”
