After continued efforts to open up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to fossil fuel companies, the Trump administration has announced their plans to start oil exploration this winter and have already opened up “nominations” for oil and gas companies to purchase a lease. The Bureau of Land Management is rushing this plan without adequate time for environmental review or public input. This move is a direct threat to God’s stunning creation, wildlife, and the rights of the Gwich’in indigenous people who live there. The Evangelical Environmental Network has long opposed the exploitation and destruction of this land, and we oppose this latest effort to put the fossil fuel industry above God’s creation and human rights.
Take action now.
