Trump takes first step in aggressive effort to drill for oil in Arctic

The Trump administration has taken the first step towards an aggressive effort to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge - one of the country’s most pristine and environmentally sensitive areas.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a division of the Department of Interior, issued a notice of intent to begin an environmental impact analysis of how oil exploration and the heavy infrastructure required to support it would alter a landscape where plants and animals thrive.

Do you think this plan will follow through?
