No to Willow Project: Reject Fossil Fuel Expansion in Alaska!
This is a pivotal moment in the fight against the climate crisis. The Biden Administration needs to stop the Willow Project and protect the communities and wildlife in Alaska.
Why is this important?
The Willow Project would impact Alaska communities, their wildlife, and our global climate. It will produce 600 million barrels of oil over 30 years—generating over 278 million metric tons of carbon emissions.
The Arctic is already suffering from climate change, warming at four times faster than the rest of the world. If this project moves forward, it will increase temperatures in a region already at risk and harm communities with the potential of methane leaks and industrial pollution.
President Biden has an opportunity to be a climate hero by listening to climate activists and local leaders and doing what’s right for our planet. Tell the Biden Administration and the Bureau of Land Management not to side with the fossil fuel industry and to stop the Willow Project now!
