As Earthjustice builds its legal case to protect the Badger-Two Medicine area, the Blackfeet Nation is building a movement, drawn together by collective outrage over the oil industry’s demands to drill a treasured landscape.
A proposal that protects the Atlantic Ocean leaves the Arctic Ocean open to new offshore oil drilling, undermining our nation’s commitment to take meaningful action on climate change and increasing the risk of oil spills.
Today, the leaders of the U.S. and Canada announced an agreement that includes a major commitment to joint climate action and Arctic conservation. Upcoming decisions create opportunities to fulfill its promise. (Spanish language version available.)
