Tom Campion in the Methow Valley News: Arctic Refuge Faces Most Serious Threat Since 1960
Our trustee Tom Campion authored a guest column in the Methow Valley News this week:
For the past 60 years, the Arctic Refuge has been protected by a bipartisan coalition of leaders who understood that it is meant to be cherished and preserved, not turned over to destructive oil and gas production.
Now, the Arctic Refuge faces its most serious threat since Republican President Dwight Eisenhower first set it aside for protection in 1960.
Our Washington senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray have led the fight to keep the Arctic Refuge protected, but in December a powerful consortium of special interests succeeded in placing drilling into the tax bill that the president signed into law.
