300 reported oil spills
in the Gulf of Mexico
in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida

Every single one of these oil spills started with a lease sale.

The Biden administration has offered for sale more than 80 million acres of offshore drilling leases to the fossil fuel industry.

How big is 80 million acres?
Twice the total area of Florida

Oil from this lease sale will take 15 years before the first gallons reach gas pumps — while locking us in to decades of continued dependence on dirty fossil fuels.

To fight climate change, we can no longer expand fossil fuel development in the present.

Join us in telling the Biden administration to overhaul the federal fossil fuel program and end new fossil fuel leasing.

Trouble viewing this action?

Why is a phone number required in the action letter form? The Biden administration requires that all letters include the sender's phone number. We only ask for a phone number because of this requirement. If your letter does not include a phone number, we will be unable to deliver it to the administration's electronic comment system.
