Biden Administration Approves Willow Oil Project in Alaska and the Arctic area

Criticism for President Biden is on the increase after he approved the Willow oil and gas drilling project in Alaska. It’s contradicting what he promised to the citizens of the United States of America in 2020. Biden has expressed implementing clean energies and environmental agendas in his presidential slogan. Halfway through his term, it seems he’s betrayed many by approving this new project.

The Willow project directs its attention to Alaska’s far North Slope and is known for the most significant oil development in the region. The company for the Willow project, ConocoPhillips expressed that it will create local investment and thousands of jobs. However, the company’s reputation is less than stellar to environmental activists. According to the Guardian, ConocoPhillips ranks as top 14 on pollution, primarily of methane, which is known to be one of the more dangerous gases for trapping too much heat within the atmosphere.

President Biden’s climate, environment, and clean energy agendas are in dilemma not because of what he promised to the U.S. citizens but because he made a choice that he shouldn’t have. He seems to be contradicting himself. Why has he changed his strong agenda for clean energy and toward drilling the “federal land,” from now on?

The promised jobs are never in plentiful supply in contrast to the income these companies earn, and the pollution will nevertheless impact us in terrible ways. How the Democratic Party expects the US to reelect this person into the Presidency, many of us no longer understand.
