CLIMATE DISASTER… Pony Express reporter, Diego Barocio, expresses his disappointment at news of the Willow Project beginning in Alaska. “The willow project should be cancelled, it’s horrible for the environment and could kill millions,” said Diego Barocio, subject of the photo. According to CNN, the willow project would make enough oil to release 9.2 million metric tons of into the atmosphere, which is equal to the emissions of about 2 million cars. However, the project could yield 600 million barrels of oil, leading to lower gas prices and a flow of revenue for Alaska and its people.
