[global network reporter Zhang Xiaoya] on the 17th, the trump government finalized a plan to allow oil and gas exploration in the US National Arctic wildlife reserve in Alaska. Reuters said it was a move by the trump administration to allow oil exploration in the reserve to get back on track before the US presidential election. However, although U.S. officials argue that the move is to boost the economy of Alaska, the trump administration has attracted a lot of abuse. Some netizens asked Trump: how much more can he do to satisfy his insatiable ego and his thirst for power! Us Interior Minister David Bernhardt said in a conference call with reporters that the Ministry of the interior may sell leases for oil exploration and exploitation in the ecological reserve by the end of this year, Reuters reported on the evening of the 17th. Bernhardt said that once oil is discovered, exploration will begin in eight years and will last about 50 years. The U.S. National Arctic wildlife reserve, covering 19 million acres (7.7 million hectares), is the largest wildlife reserve in the United States. The Beaufort Sea coastal plain in the reserve is home to polar wildlife such as caribou and polar bears. It is estimated that oil reserves are abundant, but drilling activities have been banned for decades. For decades, environmental protection organizations and fossil energy enterprises have been arguing over whether to exploit oil and gas resources in the reserve. People, including presidential candidate Biden, and some environmental groups have criticized the move as a gift to large oil companies, but it is harmful to the unique Arctic ecosystem and local residents. “Trump’s plan is to destroy the United States as much as possible before he leaves office. How much more does he have to do to satisfy his insatiable ego and his thirst for power? ” < p > < p > the Republican Party passed a tax bill in 2017 to open up oil and gas leasing in the U.S. National Arctic wildlife reserve. Reuters said it was a key pillar of Trump’s agenda to expand fossil fuel production. However, plans to sell leases have been weak for most of the past 10 years, while fossil fuel extraction across the state of Alaska has been steadily declining over the past 30 years. In response to the decision, Dunleavy said that opening up the drilling business in the National Arctic wildlife reserve would create jobs and boost the oil dependent Alaska economy. However, the government’s defense of the decision has not been taken by some environmental groups. “The struggle to protect the calving grounds of caribou porcupines is not over,” wrote gwich’in Steering Committee, a blog that relies on caribou for survival Earth justice, an environmental group in the United States, has also promised to initiate legal proceedings.
