We can’t keep fighting for our planet without your help.
In recent years, the federal government has handed over vast swathes of public lands and waters to private corporations to drill for oil, mine for coal, and otherwise exploit. As a result, nearly 25% of climate-cooking emissions from the United States come from fossil fuels pumped or mined from lands and waters that belong to all Americans.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Instead of fueling the climate crisis and the extinction boom, public lands and waters can be part of the solution. During his first week in office, President Biden took two steps toward making it so. One move protects most of the Arctic Ocean and some important Atlantic Ocean canyons from drilling; the other puts a pause on new oil and gas leasing across all public lands and waters.
Read on to learn how these actions will help and what steps the Biden administration must take next.
