The Biden administration recently approved a major oil project for the Alaskan Arctic that would come with lots of of oil wells and launch 300 million tons of carbon over the following 30 years.
Humorous, that doesn’t sound just like the Joe Biden who was campaigning for president some time again.
The Willow Undertaking was pushed by ConocoPhillips and was initially accepted by the Trump administration, which was later blocked in court docket.
Biden campaigned on defending the Arctic however appears to be keeping an eye on his political future greater than his environmental legacy. Some Democratic advisers are, (sigh) as soon as once more, advocating a transfer to the center earlier than the following election.
You understand, grow to be extra like Republicans to allow them to preserve Republicans out of workplace.
In the meantime, carbon ranges will enhance and ConocoPhillips will attempt to refrigerate the melting permafrost (actually!) so their gear received’t get caught as they extract extra oil.
Does it get extra absurd than mechanically chilling permafrost so you possibly can drive your vehicles on it to drill for extra oil?
