President Obama: Keep your climate promise

Action: Climate Change

January 14, 2016   Action Alert ID# 324

 

Just six months ago, the oil industry -- with the support of the Obama administration -- seemed unstoppable as it pushed for new offshore drilling projects in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans. But things have changed quickly.

Fighting in court and in the streets, the Center and allies helped pressure Shell and StatOil to end their Arctic drilling ambitions. The U.S. government cancelled two planned Arctic lease sales. And on the East Coast, dozens of town councils passed resolutions aggressively opposed to Atlantic drilling.

Now's the time to build on this momentum: Tell Obama to end all new federal oil and gas leases, starting with a permanent ban on drilling in the Arctic and Atlantic.

At the Paris climate talks, the United States and 195 other countries recommitted to the goal of limiting global temperature increases to no more than 2 degrees Celsius, as well as efforts to keep that increase to 1.5 degrees. That means leaving the majority of fossil fuel reserves safely in the ground. Among the best places for the United States to begin is offshore, keeping 61.5 billion tons of carbon emissions out of our atmosphere.
