Arctic Drilling Push Comes Down to Trump’s Final Days (Podcast)

Nov. 18, 2020, 7:05 PM

The Trump administration may need every single remaining minute of its four-year term to accomplish its goal of opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil drilling.

On this episode of our weekly environmental podcast, Parts Per Billion, we hear from Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer A. Dlouhy about how the administration is in a race against the clock to auction off leases in this environmentally sensitive area of northeastern Alaska. Jennifer says there’s so little time, it’s possible the auctions may take place on Inauguration Day, just hours before President-elect Joe Biden takes office.
