As the three senators crafting climate legislation try to rally moderates behind their cause, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) could be a key player, since she’s shown some (but not much) willingness to play ball on climate issues. That’s why environmental advocates were so dismayed when she announced that drilling in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge was a “must-have”in order to win her support.
But now Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), one of the Senate climate trio, is telling her he’s not going to cave on this issue. The Hill reports:
“That is just not going to happen,” he told reporters in the Capitol. [...]
“We are looking at a lot of things, we are bending to bring people in, but that one is a no-no,” he said.
In order to keep another member of the triumvirate, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), on board, any climate bill will have to include expanded nuclear power and offshore drilling. But on the ANWR issue, it seems, Lieberman is drawing the line.
