Hillary Clinton Criticizes Obama Administration over Arctic Drilling

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has criticized President Obama’s move to allow oil drilling in the Arctic. Earlier this week, the administration granted Royal Dutch Shell final approval to resume drilling for oil and gas in the Arctic Ocean for the first time since 2012, despite widespread protests from environmental groups. Taking to Twitter, Clinton wrote, “The Arctic is a unique treasure. Given what we know now, it’s not worth the risk of drilling.”
