Tell Obama: Keep It In the Gulf!
*UPDATE* The comment period closes this Thursday, June 16. Sign and share this action before the deadline to be counted and help us hit our goal (with coalition partners) of delivering over 1 million comments to #KeepItInTheGround.
President Obama's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) just proposed to sell off 92.2 million acres of the Gulf of Mexico for oil and gas drilling. Doing so would unleash a climate catastrophe by tapping the eighth-largest carbon reserve on Earth and increase the chances of another oil spill like the BP Horizon disaster.
Thanks to a massive public outcry by Environmental Action members and millions of others, Obama already reversed course on plans to drill off the Atlantic Coast, and recently placed a moratorium on new coal mining on public lands. But we only have until June 16, 2016 to tell BOEM that we want a Keep It In the Ground hat-trick by blocking new oil and gas leases in the Gulf too.
Sign here to tell Obama and his BOEM to Keep it In the GULF too, by halting all new oil and gas leasing in the Gulf of Mexico.
