140+ Organizations and Businesses Urge Biden Administration to Reject ConocoPhillips' Dangerous Willow Project
Letter Comes on Top of 180,000+ Individual Comments Submitted in Opposition to Massive Oil Project
The decision your administration will make on the Willow Project is a legacy-defining decision that could commit us to at least another 30 years of fossil fuel extraction. It will also begin the aggressive development of a region that houses enough fossil fuels that, if burned, would equal more than double the carbon emissions of burning all the oil that the Keystone XL pipeline would have carried over its 50-year lifespan, had it been approved.
Declining to approve the proposed Willow project and its highly problematic carbon implications would be an important step in the fulfillment of the Biden administration's commitments to sound policy and science, as well as in the work to fully deliver on your long-term climate and environmental justice promises.
