  1. Howdy,
    Isn’t drilling in the ANWR a done deal? Or was it Alaska that I was reading about? Can’t disagree with your assesment of this president. These days I try to work through grass roots organizations such as Defenders of Wildlife which has had good success using the law against environmental assassins. I do vote, but I just think the only thing that’s gonna put a stop to this is getting people to use alternative energy.

  2. Hey Mr. Stout,
    How about a look at the prelims of those murals. So just what sort of prehistoric creatures were living in what is now San Diego, anyway?

  3. Hi Bill,
    I was very sad to see drilling in the ANWR was passed by the Senate. Even though I’ve never been and may never go I like knowing such a large untouched area still exists and I’m afraid this will open the floodgates on allowing drilling in other protected areas.

    I’m looking forward to Lilly’s Light – I have a 2-year old and know there’s room for a quality children’s show.

    That’s too bad about Princess of Mars. I was looking forward to seeing your designs for that project. I’m surprised the other artists you mentioned would agree to those terms.

    I just watched End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones. Very entertaining and informative. The box set should be great.

  4. To Aaron:
    Defenders of Wildlife is great. I also support the Natural Resources Defense Council, Sea Shepherd Society, Sierra Club and the Environmental Defense Fund — and, of course, my pet charity The Antarctica Project. Greenpeace has become so huge and fundraiser-heavy in regards to where they’re spending their dough that, unfortunately, they’ve lost a lot of their effectiveness.

    Prehistoric San Diego included (among many other creatures) hadrosaurs (Lambeosaurus), Troodon, Albertosaurus, pteranodons, ankylosaurs and mosasaurs in the Cretaceous as well as mastodons, mammoths, sabertooths, camels, horses, giant sloths, tapirs, capybara, bison, giant sea cows, cave lions, dire wolves and ancient whales in the Cenozoic.

  5. Hi Aaron,
    I did a little homework. No, the outcome of the ANWR fight is not quite yet a done deal. There is still a chance to save it from Bush’s drillers.

    Ordinarily I wouldn’t use my site for such straight ahead political targeting — but there’s a lot at stake here. Drilling in ANWR is totally unnecessary. We could save more oil through a minute national conservation effort than we would ever get from drilling in the Wildlife Refuge — and we wouldn’t have to wait ten years for the results. So here is a copy of a letter I just received from John Adams of the Natural Resources Defense Council. I hope you’ll respond.

    Dear NRDC Action Fund Supporter,

    The congressional battle over oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is heating up again, and the NRDC Action Fund is taking the fight directly to a handful of swing states.

    We have produced a series of hard-hitting radio ads that will generate urgently needed pressure on three Republican senators and one representative whose positions could well prove decisive to the Arctic Refuge.

    All four of these members of Congress have stood with us in the past by opposing an Arctic drilling provision in the federal budget. But, right now, they are under enormous pressure from party leadership to support a final
    budget that would sacrifice the Arctic Refuge.

    It is critical for them to hear from their pro-environment constituents immediately.

    I hope you’ll go to right now and listen to one of these radio ads. Then, please make an online contribution that will help run the ads in our target states — Minnesota, Maine, Oregon and Iowa — and generate a wave of public support for the Arctic Refuge.

    Your donation can make an enormous difference in this campaign to save America’s greatest sanctuary for Arctic wildlife. Thank you.


    John H. Adams
