Stop Drilling In The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Target: Lisa Murkowski, Senator of Alaska

Goal: Halt plans to drill for oil in the Arctic.

Senate Republicans have approved a bill allowing oil and gas companies to drill in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska has claimed that drilling “can be done safely with new technology, while ensuring a steady energy supply for West Coast refineries” and will “help keep energy affordable.”

This is nothing more than a lie, an excuse to allow gas and oil companies to destroy more of this planet in order to line their pockets. The refuge is home to vulnerable species such as polar bears, caribou, and many migratory birds; it has kept them safe for decades and is one of the few truly pristine and unspoiled areas of the country where wildlife can live in peace. The gas and oil industry’s intrusion will not only destroy their habitat, but will poison and possibly kill many or these animals, all for the sake of a profit.

We must keep the Arctic National Widlife Refuge safe from this greedy industry to ensure a bright future for these animals. Sign this petition to protect the refuge and preserve its wildlife’s right to exist peacefully.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Murkowski,

Your approval of a bill allowing gas and oil companies to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is unacceptable. The refuge is home to many vulnerable species of wildlife, including polar bears, who do not deserve to have their habitat infringed on by dangerous and toxic chemicals. Despite your claim that the drilling can be done safely and that it will help keep energy affordable, the gas and oil companies are still invading the safety and sanctity of this pristine refuge.

You must revoke your approval of this bill immediately. The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is much too important to let the gas and oil industry destroy for the sake of profit. Help us protect wildlife and this planet, rather than aiding companies wishing to line their pockets at the expense of the environment.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. No drilling! Stop destroying the planet! Stop destroying the animals! Stop the obsession of money! Start protecting and preserving what little we have left!

  2. Dear Sir:

    How do you wish to be remembered – a mindless machine that blindly follows orders or as an individual that believed in a future for his children and mankind?

  3. What people do for some money, disgusting. Please think long term, this is the only planet we have.
