Tell Congress: Stop the Arctic Giveaway

Republican leaders in Congress are trying to open our pristine Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to catastrophic oil drilling — the worst threat to the Arctic Refuge in decades. They’re using a huge tax cut bill to allow drilling on the refuge’s coastal plain. Billionaires and wealthy corporations get a massive tax cut windfall, and the rest of us pay for it by selling off our pristine public lands to oil companies?

It’s time to stand up and tell Congress to stop this travesty. That’s why the NRDC Action Fund is launching new TV and digital ads to amplify the voices of Americans who want our wild lands to stay wild.

Oil drilling is destructive and dirty; it has no place on public lands specifically designated as a refuge for threatened wildlife such as polar bears.

Call your congressional representatives now and tell them to vote against tax cuts for billionaires and wealthy corporations that the rest of us have to pay for. Tell them to stop reckless oil drilling in one of America’s most beautiful and pristine places.
