@UNM ecology professor Subhankar Banerjee says the Trump administration's plan to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to oil drilling is "a bigger crisis than the climate crisis... the crisis of extinction — what the scientists call 'biological annihilation.'"
The Trump administration is finalizing plans to open one of the world’s last pristine wilderness regions, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, to oil and fracked gas drilling.
The U.S. Senate passed a $1.4 trillion tax bill yesterday, which includes a proposal to allow drilling for oil in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
The numbers in this story--and their implications--are truly terrifying. It echoes this week's story of Trump drilling in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge. Acts of nihilistic vandalism, just for the sake of $ and of showing who's boss
Remember that while Alaska burns, we're busily getting ready to drill for more oil in the state's giant Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. It's almost as if we're not thinking clearly
I will do everything I can to block drilling in one of the most intact ecosystems we have on the planet. Retweet to join me in the fight to protect the Arctic Wildlife Refuge.
