There is a new name to add to the list of catastrophic climate failures by the Biden Administration: Alaska LNG.
On his last full day in office, in one of the last acts of his dying Administration, President Donald Trump approved a leasesale for oil and drilling in the iconic Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).
The Trump Administration has signalled its “aggressive” intent to open up the entire coastal plain of the Arctic National Widlife Refuge, long seen as America’s last true wilderness and seen as its Crown Jewels or the America’s Serengeti.
BP is selling what it once called its “Jewel in the Crown”, its Alaskan operations. But it leaves a toxic legacy..
An international petition has been launched to put pressure on the Norwegian Government to establish permanent protection for the iconic Lofoten islands, which are a key battleground between the oil and gas industry and conservationists.
“Of all of the Trump administration’s conservation rollbacks, the drive to sell off one of America’s wildest places for dirty, high-risk oil-drilling ranks among the worst.”
Yesterday, the decades-old struggle over what is America’s last wilderness area, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), was reopened when Congress voted to open the Refuge to oil drilling.
A new survey has found that 70 percent of US voters oppose drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Despite the gleeful scenes late on Friday night by the Republican leadership, a mere 18% of Republican voters “strongly support” the policy.
You would have thought that after being battered by two devastating hurricanes in recent weeks, which experts believe were fuelled by warmer seas caused by climate change, even the most die-hard climate denier would think again.
In a devastating rebuke to Donald Trump, the head of the US Coast Guard has admitted the United States is not ready to clean up an oil spill in the Arctic.
