End New
Offshore Drilling

Every offshore oil spill began with a lease sale.

Offshore drilling poses huge risks to the health of communities, workers, wildlife, and the climate. That’s why community-led organizations in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska, along with allied national environmental organizations, are united in their call to the Biden administration:

No New Leases

Most voters do not want to expand offshore drilling

Big Oil is pushing the Biden administration to lease millions of acres of our ocean for drilling – but there’s still time for the White House to stand up to the fossil fuel industry!

We need your voice!

Please sign the petition asking for no new offshore oil and gas leasing so we can keep our oceans safe and clean!

Right now, the Biden administration is considering new, unnecessary leasing for offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and Cook Inlet of Alaska. President Biden’s decisions about this next five-year program for offshore oil and gas is critical for climate and communities - more offshore leasing is not our future.

New leasing would do nothing to alleviate current high energy prices, would undermine President Biden’s goal to cut carbon emissions by at least 50 percent by 2030, and would fuel dangerous climate change. 

Plus, impacts on U.S. oil and gas production would be negligible for at least the next decade in part because of substantial reserves already under lease. We cannot risk dirty and dangerous oil spills wrecking our ocean wildlife and coastal communities.
