Decision threatens coastal communities, marine life, and the climate
“People across the country have made it clear that they oppose expanded offshore drilling in places like the Arctic and Atlantic. The current leasing plan, which was completed after millions of people weighed in, leaves those places off limits to expanded drilling. There is absolutely no good reason for the Trump administration to abandon this plan and replace it with something that will jeopardize our oceans for generations to come. We will work hard to resist this attempt to sacrifice the health of our coastal communities, wildlife, and climate, all for the benefit of the oil industry.”
