Arctic Leases Out

 ·  Major General (ret.) Paul Eaton, Vet Voice Foundation

Thank you President Obama for listening to the call of coastal communities, scientists, and the large majority of Americans who recognize that offshore drilling is too risky and too dirty to allow. Today’s decision to drop proposed leases in the Arctic moves America one step closer to a clean energy future. This sets the stage for protecting our climate and our coastal communities by permanently barring the oil and gas industry from the Arctic and Atlantic and ending offshore drilling elsewhere as well. #ProtectArcticOcean #NoNewLeases 

Thank you President Obama for dropping proposed Arctic leases from the final offshore leasing program and listening to the call of Arctic communities, scientists, and the large majority of Americans who recognize that Arctic drilling is too risky and too dirty to allow. President Obama: safeguard our climate and our coastal communities by permanently barring the oil and gas industry from the Arctic and Atlantic, and by ending offshore drilling elsewhere as well.

Coastal communities, scientists, and the majority of Americans called on the president to halt offshore drilling plans in the Arctic and he listened. #ProtectArcticOcean #NoNewLeases
