Right now, the Biden Administration is finalizing its five-year offshore drilling plan. This plan determines how often the government will sell new rights to drill in federal waters to oil and gas companies.
The latest draft shows that the Administration is undecided. The plan could allow anywhere from zero to 11 lease sales and it’s our job to ensure the final number is zero.1 This plan could be unveiled any day, so our window to act is now.
If enough of us speak out against offshore drilling today, we can build the pressure we need to make sure President Biden keeps fossil fuels in the ground.
Will you add your name to our petition demanding President Biden ban offshore drilling? We need to show there is overwhelming public support for this, so we’re aiming to get 5,000 new signatures today.
We can’t afford to delay a just transition to renewable energy any longer. If President Biden allows more oil leases to be sold, it puts coastal communities further at risk and increases the risk of even more oil spills – all while lining the pockets of fossil fuel billionaires.
Let’s be clear, Jeanne: If we want to avoid the most catastrophic impacts of climate change and pursue justice for frontline communities, federal fossil fuel leasing and offshore drilling must finally come to an end.
Thanks for taking action.
