No one wants to talk ANWR
Facebook Twitter Email

Supporters and proponents are telling The Anchorage Daily News they are unwilling to talk about drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, due to the recent terrorist attacks on the United States.

Environmental groups have pulled their ads and softened their anti-Bush stance. Pro-drillers say they are more worried about crisis than oil and gas development.

Even pro-ANWR Sen. Frank Murkowski (R-Alaska) isn't talking. At first, he said the incident should raise concerns about tapping domestic oil supplies but now he's mum.

Native America Calling has scheduled a discussion on ANWR today at 1 PM Eastern Standard Time.
