Every drilling area comes with risks

Re: "Mr. President, Arctic drilling is too risky. "

Honestly, no matter where you drill it's going to be risky -- whether it's in ANWR, the Arctic seas, wherever. Sure, the Arctic seas have the whales and polar bears, and each animal is needed and an oil spill is a possibility. But if we drill in ANWR, couldn't it have the same outcome? Every place you drill and every company doing so has the same possible outcome.
