Investigative Report Shows “Ghost Group” Suing to Stop Alaska Development

October 30, 2023

Alert Americans know the eco-Left has targeted Alaska for decades, hoping to throttle the state’s resource development opportunities to ‘save the planet’ from the ‘existential threat’ of climate change.

While no opportunity has been attacked for as long as the 40-year fight over oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), nor with as much vigor as the Pebble Project, with its $1 trillion in copper and other mineral assets, at least those were targeted by legitimate eco organizations.

But, according to an investigative report in Must Read Alaska, radical environmentalists have taken to using ‘ghost’ groups to fight the Willow project in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A).

Calling themselves Sovereign Inupiat for a Living Arctic (SILA), this rag-tag group of dissident residents from across the North Slope of the state don’t exist in any formal way – no IRS paperwork, no State of Alaska business license, no corporate filings – but have filed suit against Willow as a formal entity.

Kudos to Suzanne Downing at Must Read for her excellent work in exposing this group.  Let’s hope Judge Sharon Gleason – who has a history of bad decisions stemming from her eco-centric bent – rules in favor of Alaska’s bright energy future.
