Sign the Petition to

President Barack Obama

Now is the time to take administrative action and embrace clean energy and climate action, by ensuring dirty fuels remain in the ground.

Climate pollution, like air and water pollution, must be considered before dirty energy projects move forward. New energy projects and leasing should be focused on clean energy, not projects that further our dependence on fossil fuels. Additionally, some places are too special to drill or mine. These areas should be permanently protected and placed off limits to dirty fuel development.

Please make a commitment to protect our lands and climate for generations to come by not allowing any new leasing of our public lands to the oil, gas and coal industry.

Signed,

In the fight to stop climate disruption, we cannot fall short. It's time for President Obama to take the next step in protecting our communities and public lands from the dangers of climate change. 

The answer is simple -- keep dirty fuels in the ground and develop clean, renewable energy like wind and solar. 

Mining, drilling and fracking proposals threaten to transform our most beautiful wild places, our communities, and even our backyards into dirty fuel industrial sites. That's why new energy projects and leasing should be focused on clean energy, not furthering our dependence on climate disrupting fossil fuels.

Send your letter today! Tell President Obama to truly embrace clean energy and climate action by ensuring dirty fuels remain in the ground.
