The Trump Administration is racing forward with their plan to open oil drilling in the Arctic Refuge, the sacred homelands of the Gwich'in people and one of the last truly wild places on earth.
The Bureau of Land Management is deciding whether or not to approve Trump’s plan, and it’s up to us to keep them from selling the the Arctic to the highest bidder and destroying our climate.
Submit a public comment to the Bureau of Land Management now urging them to stop Trump’s land grab for oil and gas drilling in the Arctic.
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is the largest protected wilderness in the country and the area’s coastal plain is believed to be the largest prospective untapped onshore oil reserve in the U.S. This is a carbon bomb that must be left in the ground.
Trump is working closely with his fossil fuel friends to solidify new drilling opportunities on federal lands. During the government shutdown, while communities went without key resources, his administration continued to do work for the fossil fuel industry to open up drilling in the Arctic.
For decades, opposition to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge has left the region untouched by industry. But the renewed fervor of the Trump administration to drill in the refuge is increasing the possibility of extraction as they regulatory rollbacks to gain access to federal lands.
