Thursday, March 2, 2023 – Willow: development vs climate change on Alaska’s North Slope
The Biden Administration is set to sign off on the beginning phases of an oil drilling plan in Alaska that promises big dividends for Alaska Native corporations and the state. Willow could ultimately produce 180,000 barrels a day and perhaps 300 long-term jobs. But, in addition to the other potential environmental damages, the drilling comes in the same place where climate change is melting permafrost and villages are having to move out of the way of rising sea levels. Thursday on Native America Calling, we hear from both sides of this timely and contentious debate.
