Domestic oil drilling is at an all-time high, but according to a new five-year plan the Obama administration has just released, the president wants to add even more fuel to the climate fire. The Alaskan Arctic and Atlantic have largely escaped offshore drilling so far, but all that could soon change.
Not only would new drilling leases worsen the global climate crisis, they'd risk oil spills and bring noise pollution and industrial development to places where they don't belong.
President Obama's Interior Department predicts a 75 percent chance of a large oil spill in the Chukchi Sea if companies are allowed to drill there. We can't take that risk. Polar bears need sea ice; they don't need oil.
