What is The Government doing?
 

Right now President Bush and his cabinets are trying to promote drilling in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge(ANWR), but the Senate is refusing to allow them to drill on ANWR because all differnet kinds of animals migrate their for the winter and it is also home of many Indians and their ancestors. They are still having controversies, but since the 2004 election the republicans of US Senate gained 4. There are now 55 Republicans, 44 Democrats and one Independent. The Refuge is now at greater risk than it ever has been.
