Despite Massive Giveaways in Energy Bill, Vampires Still Want to Drill in ANWR

by Mary

Bush is set to sign the pork barrel-filled Energy Bill today. But one goal the oil industry did not get was opening the Artic National Wildlife Refuge up for drilling. Never fear, those who cannot wait to despoil the refuge with oil rigs have not given up. Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM) plans to attach a provision to give ANWR to the energy industry on a budget bill that can't be filibustered. Look for another bitter fight this autumn as Bush and his friends won't be satisfied until they've sucked every last drop of oil up from the earth. After all, you don't need refuges when you believe the world is only there for this generation of people to consume.
