Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 3.9

The Fish and Wildlife Service, in consultation with the Bureau of Land Management, had approved the Conoco Phillips’s Willow project. However, U.S. District Judge Sharon Gleason claimed their analysis was insufficient and cited other environmental reasons to block the major oil project. Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy called it a “horrible decision” to block the project, saying jobs and energy dependence would be a benefit to Americans.
