Another Victory for ANWR, and Hopefully Sound Energy Policy

TAP_video.jpgThe battle over ANWR continues, as everyone has probably read by now, with a major victory for the refuge. The battle is likely not to be over, and I encourage you, once again, to pass around the video we made this summer called “Drawing the Line” – Jimmy Carter himself called it “… a good film”.
The message in the film is important and bridge building: That the issue is about much more than protecting a wildlife refuge, it’s about drawing a symbolic line that says now is the time when the United States makes efficiency and renewables the cornerstone of energy policy – for a more secure, and ultimately more profitable future.
