I cannot in good conscience vote for final passage of legislation that would pave the way to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.
While endangering one of the most pristine areas in the world, drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge would do nothing to make our country more energy independent.
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a unique and biologically special place that should be preserved.
Drilling in ANWR fails to lower energy prices today and sets no long term energy strategy for tomorrow.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
