U.S. Wildlife Regulator Slams Trump's Alaska Drilling Study

The Trump administration conducted an expedited study of proposed drilling in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and this week the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issued harsh criticism of the study.

According to Reuters, the wildlife regulators found that the study neglected to adequately consider oil spills, climate change and the welfare of polar bears.

The criticism could deal a blow to one of the most high-profile items in President Donald Trump’s energy agenda.
