Opening round in new fight for the Arctic Refuge

They're back!

Just two months after we blocked the oil lobby's shameless attempt to use the defense spending bill to put oil rigs in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, they're at it again.

The White House has released a budget plan that calls for massive drilling in the Arctic Refuge. Just weeks after he told the nation we're "addicted to oil," the President has suffered a relapse and is inviting the oil giants to devour America's greatest sanctuary for Arctic wildlife!

His "drill-it-all" budget is now in the hands of the Senate and House budget committees. And they plan to vote NEXT WEEK on whether to keep Arctic drilling in the budget.

We need your immediate help to run timely print ads that will send the chairs of those two committees a message loud and clear: Say No to the oil lobby by keeping Arctic drilling out of the budget!

Go to right now to view our ad targeting Representative Jim Nussle (R-IA) and Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH). Then please make an online contribution that will help generate a wave of constituent opposition in their states to this sneak attack on the Arctic Refuge.

President Bush knows full well that the vast majority of Americans are opposed to drilling in the Arctic Refuge. That's why he's working with his pro-oil allies in the House and Senate to hide this year's assault on the Arctic Refuge in the massive budget bill.

Representative Nussle and Senator Gregg have both said they want to keep their budget bills clean of controversial measures. But last year they both caved in to White House pressure and let the oil lobby hijack the budget process.

If we want Representative Nussle and Senator Gregg to stand firm this year and turn the oil lobbyists away at the door, we must make sure they feel overwhelming pro-Arctic pressure from their constituents.

You can make that happen right now by helping us run our newest ads in their states!

Please go to and make an online donation that will help us rally the opposition and stop this latest scheme to destroy the Arctic Refuge for the benefit of the oil industry. Thank you.
