This is great news and is evidence that we as a community are shifting towards sustainability, and that this is achievable in our society. All the activists who put their energy and hearts into this process deserve the joy they are undoubtedly feeling. Also, Progress Energy has demonstrated courageous response. Thank you for listening, and embracing the strength to shift the paradigm.

This is among the most thoughtless, barbaric, ignorant and selfish statements to be found. Why is there a "need" to risk ruining one of the very few pristine environments left on earth? To help fuel your Hummer? Moron.

" If drilling were permitted in the ANWR, it would take 10 years for production to start and would only produce 876,000 barrels of oil a day during peak of production. The amount of oil in ANWR would only increase the amount of oil reserve in the world reserve by 0.3% and there is not enough oil to make a slight difference in the world oil price. ANWR would produce about 3.3% of daily consumption of oil in America and we would still be dependent on foreign oil."
