The Biden administration is no longer defending a halted project that would have unleashed a global climate bomb by drilling for fossil fuels in the Western Arctic.
Siding with Earthjustice and our clients, a federal court in August rejected permits for the Willow Project – a proposal by ConocoPhillips to explore for oil and gas across a vast expanse of tundra – on the grounds that the government did not adequately consider the project’s climate impacts.
