In environmental news, the Trump administration announced Wednesday its approval of a plan to drill for oil off the Alaskan coast. Hilcorp Energy’s proposal to drill in the Beaufort Sea would be the first oil and gas production facility in federal waters off Alaska. Meanwhile, France has approved a plan by oil company Total to start drilling off the coast of French Guyana, which is located in the north Atlantic coast of South America. Environmental groups condemned the plan, raising concerns over threats to the region’s biodiversity. We’ll have more on the proposed oil drilling off the Alaska coast after headlines with conservationist Subhankar Banerjee.
