UPDATE: The Trump administration is doing everything it can to open millions of acres of Alaska’s Arctic to the oil industry. We’re fighting back.
The Center for Biological Diversity is part of a lawsuit filed against the Trump administration over its plan to allow oil and gas drilling on 18.7 million acres of the Western Arctic.
The lawsuit is one of several recent legal challenges fighting the administration’s push to vastly increase oil and gas leasing, exploration and development across America’s Arctic.
“This is one of the most remarkable places on the planet and it’s unconscionable that the Trump administration is trying to turn it into an industrial zone,” said Kristen Monsell, an attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity.
