LCV Statement on the Biden-Harris Admin’s Disappointing Decision to Allow the ConocoPhillips’ Willow Project to Move Forward

Mar 13, 2023

Washington D.C. – In response to the release of the Biden-Harris administration’s final decision to move ConocoPhillips’ Willow Project forward, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“We are extremely disappointed that the Biden-Harris administration has decided to grant ConocoPhillips’ dirty and dangerous Willow Project permission to move forward. This is in direct conflict with the Biden-Harris administration’s goals of cutting climate pollution in half by 2030, and it’s now all the more important they double down on executive action that maximizes climate and conservation progress. The new protections announced for the threatened Arctic are important, but they do not make up for Willow’s approval.
