SENATOR WYDEN, PLEASE PROTECT THE ARCTIC!
Dear Senator Wyden,
America’s Arctic is on the front lines of climate change—temperatures are climbing at twice the global pace. These changes are important signs of what may come for the rest of the planet.
Dirty energy from oil drilling adds a one-two punch for the Arctic: the region’s wildlife suffers immediate threats from pollution, industry, and oil spills; and burning these fuels will only accelerate the pace of climate change. We need to protect our public lands in the Arctic so wildlife and people have room to adapt with those changes.
Our last wild frontier should be permanently protected, not opened to drilling that only deepens our addiction to oil. Please stand with Oregonians in protecting our public lands and waters from drilling in the special places in America’s Arctic: the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the Arctic Ocean, and the special Areas in the Western Arctic’s NPRA.
