The US government has defended its decision to begin exploration in Alaska, arguing that the project should continue because there is no climate crisis on the planet.

In a statement, the US Land Administration Board said in a statement on the environmental impact of the Alaska prospecting project, reported in the US newspaper The Hill on Monday, in a final step before the start of the sale of drilling and exploration contracts in areas of protected Alaska, which Democrats in Congress are seeking to protect.

The statement by the US Land Administration Board bears the response of President Donald Trump’s administration to opponents who argue that drilling in the reserve would accelerate the consequences of the global climate change crisis.

“The US Lands Administration does not agree that the proposed development in Alaska is incompatible with the preservation of a livable planet, in other words, there is no climate crisis”, the statement said.

“The planet has been warmer over the last 1,000 years, according to extensive archaeological evidence such as agriculture in Greenland and grapes in England. This warmth did not make the planet unviable, but it was a time when communities thrived”,  the statement said.
