Federal judge voids permits for major Alaska oil project

A federal judge on Wednesday voided the permits for a ConocoPhillips oil project in Alaska's North Slope.

Why it matters: The ruling deals a blow to the Willow oil project, which could produce up to 160,000 barrels of oil per day, after the Trump administration approved drilling for it. The government's support for the project continued into Biden's presidency.


The bottom line: U.S. District Judge Sharon Gleason wrote in the 110-page ruling that the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service incorrectly approved the project, after failing to consider its impact on foreign greenhouse gas emissions and disregarding alternative development plans.

What they're saying: Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy (R), whose state joined in the lawsuit to defend the permits, issued a statement calling the ruling "a horrible decision."

  • "The Willow project would power America with 160,000 barrels a day, ┬áprovide 1000s of family-supporting jobs, and greatly benefit the people of Alaska," he said.
  • The Department of the Interior declined to comment on the matter.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
