The polar and grizzly bears that live in the refuge would have their costal dens in some cases either destroyed or abandoned.
The introduction of the ANWR into the field of oil exploration will re-instate the oil that is produced by Alaska as a state.
A failure to open the ANWR field for oil exploration will negatively jeopardize the survival of various companies; BP and Arco Alaska both of whom have invested a lot in this area.
S which is also among the least developed states with many forests with the accessibility between the villages is through the use of planes.
It is estimate that the exploration will be conducted in an approximate area of 8% (2000 acres) and the remaining area about 17.5 million acres will be protected.
Drilling in Alaska will not only bring money back o the States but provide jobs for hundreds of people...
The debate on drilling in the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge is an intensely debated topic of America today.The consequences on the environment by the drilling would destroy the animal population and would change the refuge for the worse.There is also the issue that the drilling would take too much work and time to get the little amount of oil that is in the reserve and we don’t even know for sure how much oil can be extracted because of our limited technology.Proponents of the oil drilling believe that the oil in the refuge will solve the high prices of gasoline, but they don’t even know what amount of oil the refuge holds and the amount of oil that we use every year in the United States.The drilling in ANWR will severely damage the wildlife refuge and its environment.The amount of roads that would have to be constructed in order to move the heavy drilling equipment to and from the oil field, along with the oil itself, would be a major cost that as of right now the United States does not have the money to fund.The amount of oil is another topic that has been pondered upon.That could be broken down into almost 37.75 million dollars every hour ("Top ten reasons to support ANWR development." par 7).Once America drills in ANWR, it provides scientists more time to figure out an alternative fuel (the oil supply in ANWR will only last about twenty-five years).This then generally means that the war is between the Republicans and the Democrats in terms of politics.The Democrats on one side are against the plans of opening up of the ANWR as was pictured by the refusal of former President Clinton while the Republics spear headed by President Bush are supporting the initiative. Alaska is the largest state with a small population in the U.
