Drew Caputo, VP of Litigation for Lands, Wildlife, Oceans, Earthjustice: “It’s legally wrong. Every presidential administration has delayed or cancelled lease sales. The Trump administration last year delayed offshore oil leases because of the pandemic and changes in the market. There were no complaints, literally, and it was an unremarkable thing because that kind of thing happens all of the time.”
Fossil Fuels Program
Who We Are
Earthjustice’s Fossil Fuels Program is taking on the fossil fuel industry’s efforts to pursue new paths to profit that not only accelerate the climate crisis, but also continue to cause harm to marginalized communities.
Our Fossil Fuels Program staff are based in Earthjustice's offices in San Francisco and Chicago, and in New Orleans. See bar admissions for our attorneys.
