THIS IS FILL THE PIPELINE WEEK! - ALASKANS SEEK CANADIAN PARTNERSHIPS - Mackenzie Photos Why is this 'Fill the Pipeline Week'? The Trans Alaska Pipeline is 2/3 empty. If it goes empty and shuts down, Alaska is out of business and America's economic recovery will take another dive. The pipeline's Pump Station One at Prudhoe Bay is surrounded by additional supplies of Alaska North Slope Oil which will be stranded unless 1) Alaska Senators and Representatives support Governor Sean Parnell's (NGP Photo) HB 110 that would improve the most rotten oil and gas investment climate in America, and 2) unless America's pathetic, federal regulatory agencies quit blocking access to billions of barrels of oil on federally controlled Arctic oil and gas areas. HERE'S HOW ALASKANS CAN BE A PART OF MAKING THIS "FILL THE PIPELINE WEEK":
- Attend TODAY'S (February 23) "Make Alaska Competitive Rally" at 11 a.m., Dowland-Bach, 6130 Tuttle, Anchorage.

The Arctic Caucus is just more than a year old. Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell (NGP Photo) wrote to the state House of Representatives' economic development committee Monday backing the premise of regional cooperation focused on resource development, environmental protection, development of shipping routes, energy projects and other common interests. "The Arctic Caucus of PNWER, and PNWER itself, is a way for us to get the word out about these important things we do, and want to do," wrote Treadwell, a former chairman of the U.S. Arctic Research Commission.
