For the Record

"It's an all-you-can-eat buffet for the oil industry."
--Adam Kolton of the Alaska Wilderness League on the GOP budget proposal that would open the Arctic Wildlife Refuge to drilling and give the energy industry $21 billion in subsidies.
Knight-Ridder/Tribune Business News, February 24, 2001

"All the stars are aligned this year."
--Roger Hererra, executive director of Arctic Power, a group formed to lobby for drilling in the Arctic Refuge.
Wall Street Journal, March 6, 2001.

"It would be helpful if we opened up ANWR. I think it's a mistake not to. And I would urge you all to travel up there and take a look at it, and you can make the determination as to how beautiful that country is."
--George W. Bush press conference, March 29, 2001.
