There is a quick fix to the US oil supply crisis, ANWR, Alaska. The US can change it’s oil situation overnight.
ANWR is ONLY 74 miles from the CURRENT Alaska pipeline. It’s that simple. THE oil to fix America’s energy problem is a mere 74 miles from an existing pipeline that reaches the lower states and aleady has oil storage and transportation, distribution for the oil. ALL we need is already waiting for oil.
In 1976, The US build a 880 mile long pipeline in Alaska. The pipeline was 800 miles long and 48′ round. A huge piece of pipe. THe 88o mile pipeline took ONLY– 3 YEARS TO BUILD. Again, the US built a 880 mile pipeline in 3 YEARS.
In 1998, the USGS estimated that between 5.7 and 16 billion barrels of recoverable crude oil and natural gas are in the coastal plain area of ANWR,
Below is a Video of Alaska Rep. Young explaining to Congress how much oil is in ANWR and TELLING Congress we have an exsisting pipeline,facilities and distribution –74miles–away. Young makes a very good speech, please listen. Yet this video is may be 3 years old or more. All it would take to start this one year project is for the president to say BUILD THAT PIPELINE. SHAW
