    Taking advantage of the public's preoccupation with an impending war in Iraq, the Bush
    administration and certain senators are trying once again to open the Arctic National Wildlife
    Refuge to oil drilling. They know they cannot win an open public debate, so the have attached
    drilling to a budget bill and plan to vote within a week. Supposedly, the rules of the senate do not
    permit filibusters of budget bills. Please contact your senators, which you can do at the web sites
    of many environmental organizations, including NRDC and Sierra Club. Or call the capitol switchboard
    at (202) 224-3121. This is not the right time to decide this important question. The coastal plain
    of the Arctic Refuge is home to the last herd of musk oxen on U.S. territory, a nursery for polar
    bears, and a seasonal destination for hundreds of kinds of birds. Much of the coastal plain to the
    west is already pockmarked with development and litigating a long series of major and minor oil
    spills. Please Don't let them trade our last great wilderness for a six month supply of oil!
