Interior Department Puts Biden Administration’s Climate Goals At Risk
Environmental Impact Report for ConocoPhillips’ Western Arctic Project Ignores Pollution and Local Community Impacts
Today the Interior Department released a final supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) for ConocoPhillips’ proposed Willow Project and I can't stress enough how it stands in direct conflict with the Biden administration's climate and conservation promises.
Conoco continues to report excessive profits and if the Biden administration grants them this massive “infrastructure hub” for oil and gas development in this critical ecosystem it will dramatically threaten the wildlife and human lives that depend on it for generations to come.
The Interior Department must wait at least 30 days before issuing a Record of Decision on Willow. The environmental analysis ignores significant and irreversible pollution and local community impacts and we urge the administration to stop the Willow Project before it's too late.
The Conservation Lands Foundation has been part of the national effort to prevent the approval of the Willow Project and as part of that effort, here's a link to the ads we're running bit.ly/3XFlsMm telling President Biden to do what's right. #StopWillow
