Trump is moving to allow drilling in NINE MILLION acres of federally protected land, a giveaway to the oil and gas industry. Once leases are finalized, this could be almost impossible to reverse. We need to flood House and Senate offices with calls and emails.
This is on top of Trump's announcement that the administration will roll back President Obama's rules to limit carbon emissions on coal-fired power plants — and a House and Senate move to gut EPA funding for fighting climate change.
Trump signed a law that opened the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling, and the administration has allowed exploratory work to start. In January, the Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke proposed opening up almost the entire American coastline to offshore drilling.
