Perhaps not ANWR, but as the articles shows, he has been willing to open up other area's for exploration and drilling that no other president has. And after what happened in the Gulf last year, don't you think it is prudent to slow things down and make sure the technology exists and companies are equipped to prevent such an environmental disaster from happening again?
