Protect our Coasts from New Oil & Gas Drilling

Goal: 2500

Congressional leaders have introduced legislation to permanently ban new offshore oil and gas drilling in U.S. waters, including the Atlantic, Pacific, Eastern Gulf of Mexico and Arctic Ocean. Passing these bills is critical to protecting our marine ecosystems, as well as coastal recreation and tourism opportunities across the United States.

Congress can also reject the Biden administration’s controversial plan to approve new offshore drilling in the next 5-year plan. On September 29, the administration announced plans for new leasing in the Gulf of Mexico that will lock us into decades of additional carbon emissions. A 60-day congressional review on the plan is now open.

Please tell federal leaders to stop new oil and gas drilling!

Oil and gas drilling is a polluting activity that damages our environment and puts human communities at risk. The industry causes grave impacts through every phase of the process and contributes to climate change as our nation and world struggle to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

Congress must protect our coasts and ocean from new oil and gas drilling. Please take action today!
