Prevent Drilling in the Arctic Ocean

This petition had 9,067 supporters

America's Arctic is ground zero for the devastating impacts of climate change – warming at about twice the rate of the rest of the world. Yet, President Obama is considering authorizing new offshore drilling in the Arctic Ocean, including offering new future drilling leases. This not only threatens Arctic wildlife but could unleash an estimated 15.8 billion tons of CO2 into our atmosphere – more than all US cars and light trucks will emit for the next 13 years!

Tell President Obama to prioritize protecting the Arctic Ocean and not approve any further offshore drilling in the region including offering future leases.
