Protect the Arctic, stop the Willow project

Re: DOI-BLM-AK-0000-2018-0004-EIS

The Willow project poses an unacceptable threat to the largest tract of undisturbed public land in the entire country. The construction of drilling sites, roads, pipelines, airstrips and more would do irreversible harm to the sensitive Arctic ecosystem.

In addition to ecological damage, the Willow project also poses a threat to our planet's climate. The amount of climate warming pollution released by the Willow project over its proposed 30-year lifespan would be equal to the annual emissions of nearly a third of all U.S. coal-fired power plants.

I strongly urge you to select the proposed Alternative A: No Action Alternative, halting the Willow project and protecting the sensitive Arctic landscape from drilling and destruction.
