The oil-and-gas-hungry Trump administration is yet again attempting to hand over public areas to the fossil fuel industry. This time, it’s our oceans that are in peril.
In April, President Trump kicked off his assault by issuing an executive order undoing a permanent drilling ban in the vast majority of the Arctic Ocean and important parts of the Atlantic.
