Argument: Drilling in ANWR would only perpetuate the US addiction to oil
Argument's parent debate(s)
- Republicans for Environmental Protection Policy Director Jim DiPeso, 4/26/06 - "Drilling the Arctic Refuge won't cure our addiction to oil; it would perpetuate our addiction to oil and give away a spectacular wilderness to oil companies. Drilling the Arctic Refuge won't lower prices and it won't bring energy security. When the U.S. holds only 2 percent of the world's oil but uses 25 percent of world oil production, an oil-centered energy policy is self-defeating."
