Subject: McCain and ANWR

E-mail: 

Mr LowryI have done alot of hiking in the beautiful deserts and mountains of AZ and would dearly love to ask the following question to Senator McCain regarding his statement that he would no more drill in ANWR than in the Grand Canyon.

 

Since APS (Arizona Power Co.) is planning the worlds largest solar plant in the desert near Gila Bend AZ what is the difference between “despoiling” 2000 acres of pristine desert with a giant farm of solar panels and “despoiling” 2000 acres of frozen tundra AK with a few drilling rigs?

 

My feeling is that neither should be considered “despoiling” anything as long as we have appropriate environmental oversight. We should do both!…
