Tell the Bureau of Land Management: No drilling in the Arctic tundra

Re: DOI-BLM-AK-0000-2018-0004-EIS

I urge you to protect the Arctic from drilling and reject the Willow Project. Drilling this undisturbed landscape would be devastating for our wildlife. The wetlands on Alaska's North Shore are critical habitat for caribou, polar bears and hundreds of species of migratory birds.

Over the 30-year lifespan of the Willow Project, 250 million metric tons of global warming pollution will be released into the atmosphere. That's equivalent to the annual carbon emissions of nearly a third of all U.S. coal-fired power plants.

Allowing this project to move forward would undermine President Biden's goal to tackle the climate crisis and cut pollution in half by 2030. Instead, more oil will be burned, making climate change worse and destroying wildlife habitat in the process.

I ask you to choose the proposed Alternative A: No Action Alternative. That is the only option that will adequately protect wildlife and stop the project from moving forward.
