Yes on Measure 1 – Fairbanks Daily News-Miner: Letters To Editor.

The attached letter counters Richard Wein’s argument with points I mostly accept … except for the point about diminishing resource.

I suspect the letter writer is not a geologist or a petroleum engineer. I’m not either, but I do know a few. The North Slope is a HUGE area. The Prudhoe Bay basin is but one oil reserve. Yes, it is starting to decline. But then there’s at least three other basins that (assuming geological conditions tell the truth) hold at least as much oil as Prudhoe Bay has provided over the last 30 years. We currently have permits for one of those basins if we can figure out the access.

I find that most of the people who favor Proposition 1 do so based on a shaky understanding of what is available to us from the North Slope.
