Washington, D.C. — The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) launched a new six-figure television and digital ad buy today in response to the Biden-Harris administration’s recently issued environmental impact statement that recommends allowing ConocoPhillips’ Willow Project to move forward.

“We urge the Biden-Harris administration to reverse course and reject ConocoPhillips’ Willow Project as soon as possible to prevent a climate disaster and irreversible damage to the Western Arctic’s people and wildlife,” said Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “Locking in more fossil fuels for decades is antithetical to the clean energy future that people across the country want. The last thing Big Oil’s C-suite executives’ should be given following a year of record shattering profits is this dirty and dangerous project. The time for the Biden-Harris administration to make the right decision and stop Willow is now.”
The television ad will run on Morning Joe in Washington, D.C. starting today through March 7. The digital campaign will also continue through March 7.
Ad script is below.
The ConocoPhillips Willow oil project—it’s a huge payday for ConocoPhillips.
And a huge step in the wrong direction for our planet.
Harming our climate and America’s Arctic.
And locking us into fossil fuels for decades.
We need to act fast – for a clean energy future and environmental justice.
President Biden, Secretary Haaland … you’ve made historic progress on climate change …
Now let’s keep going.
We can stop the Willow project, before it’s too late.
