Hi Rich,I wonder if McCain has any idea that the ANWR is bigger than the average city park… In fact, here is some idea of its size:

 Size of ANWR relative to U.S. states:

1. ANWR 19.0 million acres 

Portion of ANWR permanently closed to development (Wilderness & Refuge) 17.5 million 

2. West Virginia 15.5 

3. Maryland  6.6

4. Vermont  6.1

5. New Hampshire 5.9

6. Massachusetts 5.3

7. New Jersey 4.9

8. Hawaii  4.1

9. Connecticut 3.2 

Area proposed for exploration  1.5 million

10. Delaware  1.3

11. Rhode Island .7

 Not to mention the geography of the Coastal Plain…he might want to look that up…
