President Obama :Cancel the New Orleans fossil fuel auction

Action: Climate Change

August 20, 2016   Action Alert ID# 413

 

Last week Gulf Coast communities were inundated with extreme flooding from a massive storm. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated, thousands of homes were damaged, and at least 11 people were killed.

Louisiana is in a state of emergency. The Red Cross says it's the nation's worst disaster since Hurricane Sandy -- and it's exactly the sort of flooding that scientists warn will escalate with global warming.

Unbelievably the Obama administration plans to make matters worse next week by auctioning 24 million acres for fossil fuel development in the Gulf of Mexico.

In the face of this climate emergency, join us and our allies in the Gulf in urging President Obama to cancel next week's auction and end new federal fossil fuel leasing altogether.

We need to keep fossil fuels in the ground and stop treating the Gulf Coast like a sacrifice zone. Offshore drilling endangers both the people of the Gulf and the climate we depend on. In the midst of this disaster, moving forward with this auction is unconscionable.
