Protect U.S. Waters from New Oil & Gas Leases

2146
Goal: 5000

The federal administration is proposing new oil and gas lease sales in the next 5-Year offshore drilling plan. This misguided proposal would expand drilling into new areas of the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska, while imposing huge risks to the health of communities, businesses, wildlife, and our planet.  

Offshore drilling is a dirty and dangerous practice that exacerbates the climate crisis as our nation struggles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Instead of approving new oil and gas lease sales that will lock our nation into future decades of offshore drilling, the U.S. should embrace the transition to renewable sources of energy.

The Department of Interior has opened a 90-day public comment period to receive feedback on the proposal. Please add your name below to tell the Interior Department that you support a 5-Year Offshore Drilling Plan with #NoNewLeases!
