Source text - English On March 16 of this year, as it has attempted to do many times since 1980, the US Senate authorized energy companies to drill in the Wildlife Refuge; since then, the House has passed similar legislation. During the August recess, Republican leaders across the country claimed to voters that exploiting the refuge will solve the problem of the nation's dependence on imported oil and reduce the high price of fuel. Should the two chambers reconcile their differences in this congressional session, our rarest and most precious wilderness may be lost for good. Despite all the oil industry's talk about "safe drilling" with environmental safeguards, mining fossil fuels from a fragile, treeless plain will permanently deface, contaminate, and gut it, while accomplishing almost nothing to offset the so-called oil crisis.
Translation - Chinese 1980年以来，美国参议院一直尝试批准能源公司对野生动物保护区进行钻探，而在今年的3月16日，它终于如愿以偿；美国众议院也通过了类似的立法。在8月份的参议院休会期间，全国的共和党领袖们向选民声称开发保护区可以解决国家依赖进口石油的问题，同时也可以降低高昂的油价。如果参众两院在国会开会期间能够消除双方的分歧，我们最珍稀的保护区可能将会永久的消失。尽管所有的石油公司都声称会在环境保护的前提下进行“安全钻探”，但在一个脆弱不毛的平原上开采石油会对这一地区造成外部损毁、污染以及内部毁坏，并且根本不可能抵消所谓的石油危机带来的影响。
