Dwight Eisenhower on Energy & Oil

 


Signed ANWR into existence as a wildlife refuge

If we open up ANWR to drilling, there are bound to be conflicts between the crews bringing out the oil and bears that want to get in among the mobile homes.

I thought, "Let's leave just one place off limits." A Republican president, Dwight Eisenhower, had signed ANWR into existence; I was not about to be a part of undoing his vision.

If ANWR is a wildlife refuge, wildlife should find sanctuary there, by definition. Letting in the oil companies while still calling it a refuge struck me as dishonest.
