Biden’s Justice Department Is Defending a Trump-Era Plan to Drill the Arctic

It’s not all unicorns and rainbows.

President Joe Biden’s support this week of an Alaska oil-drilling project given the green light by the Trump administration at the eleventh hour of his presidency undermines Biden’s pledge to address climate change, conservation advocates say.

The Willow project involves drilling 250 wells to extract oil in a 23 million-acre Alaska reserve. The Biden administration — which has halted new oil and gas leases on federal land — gave the Trump-era project the green light in court this week.
