Tell ConocoPhillips: Stop this proposed Arctic drilling project before it’s too late

ConocoPhillips CEO Ryan Lance:

ConocoPhillips’ proposed Willow Master Development Project is the single largest oil extraction project proposed on federal lands, estimated to add more than 250 million metric tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere over the next 30 years — equivalent to the annual emissions from 66 coal-fired power plants (roughly one-third of all U.S. coal plants).

Furthermore, even before the oil drilling begins, the construction of roads and infrastructure will fragment wildlife habitats and put animals at risk in their own homes.

We, the undersigned, strongly urge you to stop this project before it spoils the Arctic forever.
