Senate Dems press for delay in Arctic drilling

“The Department of Interior‘s proposals to allow drilling activity in the Arctic Ocean have generated significant controversy and litigation, with opposition from local communities, Members of Congress, scientists, the conservation community, and the American people,” the senators wrote in a letter finalized on Friday.

They pointed to the oil giant Royal Dutch Shell, which experienced a series of mishaps last year while drilling in the Arctic — which included the grounding of a drilling rig and violations of air pollution permits. The administration is weighing whether to let the company resume its exploration activities.
