Oil Rig In Alaska?
The Federal Government Official
Problems with drilling in Alaska
- Drilling in Alaska will do nothing to lower today’s gas prices and will not address our nation’s long-term energy needs.
- Alaska has some of the last untouched places on earth, don't ruin it with an oil rig.
- One mistake with a rig could leave devastating marks on Alaska fishermen and people in Alaska.
- Alaska doesn't want another accident like the Exxon Valdez oil tanker which spilled 11 million gallons of oil in Alaska in 1989 and you can still find oil on the shores from that accident.
The beaches could be harmed if oil is leaked.
