(This blog originally appeared on Patagonia’s Cleanest Line blog.) Full disclosure. As the executive director of the Alaska Wilderness League, I’m slightly biased when it comes to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
This week Senators Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Ed Markey (D-MA) took bold action to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, introducing legislation that would designate its Coastal Plain as Wilderness. This legislation has historic levels of support with 34 Senators!
