Say NO to Drilling in the Arctic
Join us in letting President Obama know that we do NOT support drilling in the Arctic and want the Arctic Ocean removed from the upcoming Offshore Energy 5-year plan.
We must protect the fragile, sacred lands of the Arctic. Once these lands, and the wildlife and communities that depend on them, are gone, they are gone forever. Join us in urging President Obama to prevent offshore drilling in the Arctic Ocean.
"I urge the Department of the Interior to remove all oil and gas leasing in the Arctic Ocean from the upcoming Offshore Energy 5-Year Plan. Alaska is experiencing climate change at a rate nearly double that of the contiguous 48 states, with impacts already being felt by our state and its people. Opening a new pool of oil and gas is inconsistent with US participation in the COP21 Climate Accord, which agrees to limit global warming to 2° C. Therefore, in the best interest of Alaska and our planet, please amend the 5-year plan to cancel any future lease sales in the Arctic Ocean."
