President Obama has done more than any previous president to lead the United States and the world in the battle against climate change. Last week he took another step toward a clean energy future, finalizing a plan that closes the Arctic and Atlantic oceans to expanded oil drilling for the next five years.
But times are changing. President-elect Trump has said he will expand offshore drilling. He could reverse Obama’s plan and open these seas to dangerous, dirty drilling.
Tell President Obama not to give him the chance.
With the stroke of a pen, President Obama could withdraw the Arctic and Atlantic oceans from expanded offshore drilling for good before he leaves office—and no future president acting alone could undo it.
Tell Obama to permanently protect the Arctic and Atlantic from offshore drilling—for the sake of our climate and our children’s future.
For a decade, Earthjustice has been in court fighting risky drilling in the Arctic Ocean. Now we have the opportunity to tell President Obama to protect this fragile region and the Atlantic Ocean for good.
Offshore oil drilling directly harms ocean life and risks devastating oil spills that history shows cannot be contained or cleaned. Offshore oil from undeveloped frontiers like the Arctic and Atlantic won’t come to market for decades, if ever. It has no legitimate place in our energy future. Permanently protecting these oil-free seas from future drilling makes enormous sense.
President Obama has done so much in the battle against climate change. Tell him to take the next step to permanently protect the Arctic and Atlantic oceans before he leaves office. It will soon be too late.
