ABSTRACT
The article criticizes the U.S. Congress' refusal to allow drilling for oil and natural gas on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. For more than 20 years Congress has blocked drilling even though experts estimate that this 2,000-acre area has 10 billion barrels or more of oil. Most of the Outer Continental Shelf is also off-limits to drilling, despite the fact that estimated reserves there exceed 85 billion barrels of oil and even greater amounts of natural gas.
