Television advertisements opposing opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska have begun airing in Washington, DC, thousands of miles away from the pristine wilderness.

The ads are the product of the Natural Resources Defense Council, who spent $500,000 on them. The ads, said a spokesman, are intended to bolster support of no-drilling in the Senate.
