The Obama Administration just finalized its offshore drilling plan for 2017-22, taking Atlantic AND Arctic drilling off the table. This is a huge victory for our oceans! But Big Oil remains determined to drill in the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans and President-elect Trump has vowed to inflict Big Oil on our public lands and waters. We need more durable protections to help withstand the coming fossil fuel onslaught.
President Obama has the authority to permanently protect the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans from offshore drilling — but he must take action before Trump takes over.
Sign Today: Urge President Obama to protect the Atlantic and the Arctic Oceans permanently from the risks of offshore drilling
Permanently protect the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans from Donald Trump and Big Oil
Dear President Obama,
Thank you for protecting the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans from the risks of offshore drilling for the next five years! This is a big win for our oceans.Unfortunately, Big Oil and Donald Trump will almost certainly keep up their attacks until they gain access to the Arctic and Atlantic oceans for drilling -- you have the opportunity to stop them now using your authority to permanently protect our oceans. No president has done more to address climate change and you've protected more lands and water than any president in history. Now please seize this opportunity to take offshore drilling off the table forever.
