Didn't know that NRDC advocates testing on animals. See www.MeanieGreenies.com

Tell everyone you know!


Dear NRDC BioGems Defender,

All hands on deck!

We have just learned that the U.S. Senate is likely to vote next Wednesday on a budget resolution that could doom the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to massive oil development and destruction.

That vote is now too close to call.

So the NRDC Action Fund is racing to produce a series of last-minute, hard-

hitting print ads that will generate public pressure on those key senators

whose votes could literally save the Arctic Refuge -- and its vulnerable

populations of caribou, polar bears, white wolves and other rare wildlife.

We urgently need your donation to run those decisive ads in our target states -- especially Hawaii and Louisiana -- on Tuesday and Wednesday in advance of the

crucial vote.

Please go to (this place is not allowing links any more so the link is h-t-t-p-s-:/-/w-w-w.nrdcactionfund.-org-/-redfordarctic-/-donate.asp - remove all dashes)

right now and make an online contribution that will help generate a wave of

national opposition to this sneak attack on America's greatest sanctuary for

Arctic wildlife.

President Bush knows full well that the vast majority of Americans oppose

drilling in the Arctic Refuge. That's why he's working with his pro-oil allies in the Senate to hide their assault on the Arctic Refuge in the massive budget bill.

This cynical ploy to bypass the democratic process of public scrutiny and

debate can only work if they succeed in keeping the American people in the

dark. We must have your help to sound the alarm and raise an outcry over the

next critical days.

Just last week, your generosity and activism helped us wage and win a come-from- behind battle to defeat President Bush's pro-polluter "dirty skies" bill in the Senate. You and I stunned the White House. Let's do it again on Wednesday!

Please do your part by going to (this place is not allowing links any more so the link is h-t-t-p-s-:/-/w-w-w.nrdcactionfund.-org-/-redfordarctic-/-donate.asp - remove all dashes)

and making an online donation that will help rally millions of Americans

against this back-door scheme to destroy the Arctic Refuge for the benefit of the oil industry.

Thank you!!

Moderator - the title with the date 3/5, as well as the info in the other post that you moved my post to does not fit with the urgency and the timeliness of what I posted. Please consider putting my post back in its original form and deleting it in a day. Thank you.
