Donald Trump's Department of the Interior announced plans to allow oil and gas drilling in nearly all United States coastal waters, putting more than 100 million offshore acres under imminent threat from Big Oil. Offshore drilling leads to costly oil spills that pollute our beaches, kill wildlife and harm our coastal and marine economies. Offshore drilling risks the livelihoods of our communities that rely on tourism, fishing, recreation and boating.
This is one more way the administration is selling us out to their biggest donors, putting oil and gas profits over people and the environment.
The Department of Interior is taking public comment on this reckless plan. They need to hear from you.
