A while back I posted on BP and the shutdown of pipeline in Alaska.

Here is a link to a press release about what Bush is doing in regards to oil and Alaska. It looks like it will have some major environmental implications.

Here is the intro paragraph:

Following closely on the heels of the largest oil spill in North Slope history and the recent pipeline shutdown in Prudhoe Bay, the Bush administration today formally announced a Sept. 27th oil and gas lease sale for portions of the National Petroleum Reserve – Alaska, including 100 percent of the irreplaceable wildlife habitat around Teshekpuk Lake.

Check out the link for the details.
