White House pushes for ANWR

The White House is sending in its enforcers to browbeat Congress into attaching the ANWR oil drilling amendment to the "starve the poor" budget slashing bill.
"We must expand domestic production of oil and natural gas in environmentally responsible ways, starting with ANWR," Energy Secretary Sam Bodman echoed in a statement.
What the hell is that supposed to mean? How do you destroy a pristine wilderness in an environmentally responsible manner? Any five year old could tell you what we must do is develop alternative sources of fuel to reduce our reliance on oil. And as Clinton pointed out, our economy, particularly in the job market, would benefit from the development of new industries related to alternate power.

This is common sense, not rocket science. How do they keep getting away with this crap?

I don't follow environmental issues much, but the way the Bush Administration handled Clinton's speech on Kyoto recently, they set new standards for childishness, even for them.
