ANWR
Alaszka.

A fúrások összesen 2000 acrest vesznek
igénybe. Azaz a 19.6 millió acresnek a 0.01%-a.

The size of the average farm in South Dakota is 1400 acres.
The size of Washington’s Dulles Airport is 11,000 acres.
The size of the National Audubon Society’s Paul J. Rainey Wildlife Refuge, where the
Society produced natural gas safely for 50 years, is 26,800 acres.
The size of the Michigan Audubon Society’s Bernard N. Baker Sanctuary, where the
Society produced oil safely for 13 years, is 900 acres.

When approved, environmentally-sensitive ANWR exploration and production on 2000 acres would create over 1 million jobs, lessen US dependence on foreign sources, and stimulate the economy.

Only 45% (or just 19 out of 42 gallons) of every barrel of oil goes to make gasoline. The
rest goes towards producing food, heating homes, and making products like medicines,
plastics, surgical devices, and more.

Oil is a key ingredient in making thousands of products that make our lives easier – and in
many cases – help us live better and longer lives.

Here are just a few examples:
Antihistamines
Antiseptics
Artificial Hearts
Aspirin
Audiocassettes

If the U.S. banned gasoline and the passenger vehicles that use it, we would still need oil.

Oil is essential to our economy, our national security, and our way of life.

ANWR’s 10.3 billion barrels of oil would lessen our dependence on foreign sources,
increase national security, and create 1 million new jobs in the U.S.
