No one wants contaminated seafood, smoggy air, oiled animals or spoiled coastlines. And to avoid the worst effects of climate change, we must keep new oil reserves in the ground, not open our public waters to more oil drilling. Yet, the Trump administration is pushing forward with plans to hand these waters over to the oil industry.
Millions of Americans have already provided feedback on the existing 5-year offshore leasing plan, and between now and August 17 the public can comment on the Trump administration’s attempt to write a new one. New leasing in places like the Arctic Ocean will inevitably lead to a spill if drilling occurs, one that is impossible to clean up. Please add a comment that rejects more drilling in the Arctic Ocean.
