“You don’t have to be Nostradamus to see the Biden Administration’s hostility to the traditional U.S. energy mix sets us up for long-term trouble. The president made it clear on his first day in office he would cede America’s hard-won gains in energy projects that led to new dominance in global energy production.” 

“With the stroke of a pen, he laid low the cause of American energy independence by canceling the permitting needed to build the Keystone XL pipeline.  When finished, it would have supplied as much as 880,000 barrels per day of petroleum and be an important part of keeping the U.S. as a major reducer of prices on the world energy market.”  

…”It should be easy to move ahead despite the braying of the usual critics. Indeed, those most immediately affected by the project, Alaskan natives, want the Willow Project approved. Doreen Levitt, the director of natural resources for the Native Iñupiat Community says the decision of whether go forward is personal for her people.” 

 “For us this decision is personal.  That’s because the future of the Willow Project will have a direct impact on each person in our community.  Willow has followed a thorough and lengthy federal review process, one that threatens to drown out the voices of us most directly impact(ed).” 

Laborers International Union of North America General President Terry O’Sullivan called Willow “essential for our nation’s security and global competitiveness.”

Of Willow developer Conoco-Phillips he says the company has, “Demonstrated a fifty-year track record of environmentally and socially responsible development of the North Slope, and we believe that Willow is the right project in the right place at the right time.”
