United States And Canada ban Arctic oil and gas drilling

The United States and Canada have announced a ban on offshore oil and gas drilling in the Arctic. US officials and environmental groups said the incoming Trump administration would not be able to roll back the decision.

US President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday announced a freeze on oil and gas leasing in the Arctic Ocean in a move applauded by environmental groups.
The US will ban oil and gas drilling in the Chukchi Sea and most of the Beaufort Sea off Alaska, as well as in a stretch of the Atlantic Ocean from New England to Virginia. Canada agreed to make its Arctic waters free of drilling, subject to review every five years.

Obama said in a statement the ban reflects "the scientific assessment that, even with the high safety standards that both our countries have put in place, the risks of an oil spill in this region are significant and our ability to clean up from a spill in the region's harsh conditions is limited."
