URGENT ACTION: HELP STOP THE WILLOW PROJECT!
The Willow Project is a $6 billion oil and gas proposal by ConocoPhillips currently up for consideration by the US Department of Interior. It is the largest pending oil and gas project on American public lands. The project was previously blocked by a federal judge due to the need for better assessment of the environmental impacts. But the Biden Administration is currently advancing the project, despite campaign promises to restore our commitment to climate mitigation and reduce America's emissions by 50%.
Willow would open up an estimated 586 million barrels of oil - the annual emissions of about 66 coal fired power plants. And it would take more than a decade for the project to deliver oil and gas to market, by which point it's estimated that 33% of the automobile market will be electric. And despite the public estimates, ConocoPhillips is telling investors that Willow stands to open up 3 billion barrels of oil - more than five times the estimate used to evaluate the environmental impact.
