Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: Key to the Nation's Energy Security

Recorded on December 12, 2005

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Congress continues to debate the issue of allowing oil production on a miniscule tract within the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). Opening ANWR to limited drilling has been strongly advocated by the Bush Administration and those who recognize the necessity of moving toward genuine national energy independence. Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton has long believed that energy production and environmental protection are not mutually excusive goals. Join us as the Secretary addresses the critical role the Department of the Interior plays in advancing a sound natural resources policy essential to achieving the security of our nation's energy supply.
