Biden greenlights controversial Alaska oil project
The Biden Administration approved the controversial Alaska oil project known as Willow after rumors surfaced last week that the Administration was set to approve it. The massive oil Willow Project covers three drill sites in the National Petroleum Reserve in an area that is estimated to hold up to 600 million barrels of oil.
The project has incited much controversy from climate activists and some of Biden’s supporters from the left, many of whom argue that the project is a major setback in fighting climate change, with the Interior Department’s estimate that the project could see 278 million metric tons over its 30-year lifespan.
