SHAME on Congress. Through the #GOPtaxbill, they voted last night to open the Arctic Refuge to oil drilling. WE WILL FIGHT THIS. We stand with the Gwich'in people and the wildlife of the refuge. Stand with us by clicking the link in our profile and signing the pledge to #ProtectTheArctic!

@florianschulzvisuals: I want my children to see it now with their own eyes so that they have a reference in their memory for the future. If you have never seen it, heard it, smelled it, felt it - how would you ever know it existed? 
This summer our two boys spent weeks with my wife and I in the wild of the Arctic Refuge. As we always strive for the magical light we had to turn day and night around. They played, searched for treasures like caribou antlers, observed birds and bears, saw a lone wolf and watched 100,000 caribou stream across the land. I hope the Arctic Refuge is still this pristine place when they will have are grown up!
We must #ProtectTheArctic so this unique and special place exists for all future generations.
