Dear NRDC Member,

With the U.S. Senate heading for a showdown vote on the Arctic National 
Wildlife Refuge, I wish I could sit down with you and other supporters to 
explain the enormous challenge we face over the next six weeks.

Since I can't do that, I've done the next best thing and recorded a short video 
message about the critical situation at hand. I hope you'll watch this two-
minute video right away.

Then I need you to take an extra step to save the Arctic Refuge by passing this 
video on to your friends and colleagues. They need to know that drilling the 
Arctic -- and destroying our natural heritage -- will not save us money at the 
pump or make us more secure.

Our goal: to reach into homes across America over the next two weeks, so that 
when the make-or-break vote comes after Labor Day, we can spring into action 
one million strong and defeat Big Oil's agenda.

Click here to view the video and pass it on to others:


We've got no time to lose.

The House recently passed the so-called "American-Made Energy and Good Jobs 
Act" (H.R. 5429), which would stuff the oil companies' already bloated coffers 
with billions more in profits.

And it would destroy the Arctic Refuge for the sake of oil that won't make a 
dent in gas prices or wean us off Persian Gulf oil.

A version of this Arctic wildlife destruction bill is now headed for a vote in 
the U.S. Senate sometime in September. Please help us mobilize one million 
Americans to stop this bill in its tracks.


I know how many times you've helped us block President Bush's relentless drive 
to destroy the Arctic Refuge.

But the political reality is this: the White House can afford to lose this 
fight repeatedly. But we cannot afford to lose once -- or else the greatest 
living reminder of our natural heritage will die forever.

Please help us prevent this disaster from coming to pass by helping us build a 
nationwide army of opposition.


And thank you for fighting to keep the Arctic wild and free.
