ConocoPhillips, Alaska’s largest crude oil producer, has proposed a “carbon bomb” that would prove devastating for the Arctic environment, its inhabitants and our planet at large. This “carbon bomb” is known as the Willow Project. If allowed to move forward, it will be the single largest oil extraction project on U.S. federal land.

The Bureau of Land Management is considering ConocoPhillips’ proposal and President Biden can stop this project from moving forward.

We held a rally to call attention to the problem.
