Protect the Arctic from Trump’s last attacks

Trump has just begun the last phase of his destructive rush to open the sacred Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling. Chip in now and protect the Arctic Refuge from this existential threat.

$25 an acre. That was the starting bid price for over 10,000 years of pristine, incomparable wilderness.

Trump and Big Oil’s goal is to turn the entire region into a fossil fuel wasteland -- a blow to the Arctic, and to our climate, from which there would be no recovery. This is a last-minute push by the administration to attack our public lands, trample Indigenous rights, and lock in unthinkable destruction and irreversible climate change while they still hold power. And it’s all for the sake of corporate greed, and yet another payday to the wealthiest industry on the planet.

This is how nature dies -- how priceless landscapes and irreplaceable species are lost forever. We’ve seen it before. We don’t have to let it happen this time.

Help stop the Trump administration’s latest scheme to turn the Arctic Refuge into a fossil fuel wasteland -- rush a $27 donation to Friends of the Earth today.
