And it just keeps coming! Now the Arctic Refuge Vote is Pending

Received this via email today...I'm giving!

Dear NRDC Action Fund Supporter,

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 -- beginning this weekend and continuing
Monday and Tuesday in advance of the crucial vote.

Please go to 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 the NDR Action Fund
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.

John H. Adams

Yes, I've given.

I feel like an orange getting squeezed from all angles. Thanks to Bush&Co., pretty soon I'll be a turnip.
