Protect the ban: No crude oil exports

Action: Climate Change

November 9, 2015   Action Alert ID# 296

 

A critical safeguard against climate change and the public-safety risks associated with fracking, America's decades-old crude oil export ban is now under attack. A few weeks ago, the House voted to lift the ban. Now Republican senators need just a few more Democratic votes to ram the legislation through.

Lifting the ban would be a huge mistake: It would massively boost oil production at a time when the latest climate science and reports on the wildlife extinction crisis demand that we leave as much of those fossil fuels in the ground as possible.

Specifically the combustion of all that newly fracked oil is estimated to generate more than 515 million metric tons of carbon pollution per year -- the equivalent annual greenhouse gas emissions of 135 coal-fired power plants or more than 100 million passenger cars.
