Endangering a Natonal Wildlife Refuge Is NOT The Answer

Join me in protecting the Arctic Refuge!
Tomorrow, the House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 5429, the so-called "American-Made Energy and Good Jobs Act."  This bill uses wildly inflated numbers to claim that drilling the Arctic Refuge is good for labor and good for the federal treasury.
The truth? The big winner in this plan is ExxonMobil; who will be stuffing its already bloated coffer with billions more in profits. And the biggest losers are the American people; we'll sacrifice our greatest wildlife sanctuary while feeding our addiction to high-priced oil.
Click below to join me in expressing outrage at this bill by emailing your member of Congress right now.
The federal government estimates that oil from the Refuge wouldn't be available for at least another ten years.  Drilling wouldn't lower gas prices for at least twenty years and then only by ONE penny per gallon!
This Arctic destruction bill is being rushed to the floor for a vote tomorrow! Click below to express your outrage at this bill by emailing your member of Congress before it's too late!
Please spread the word to your friends and family and ask them to join you in contacting their representatives, too.
