The Bureau of Energy Ocean Management just released a draft of its 5-year plan for oil and gas leasing. The draft plan opens up the Gulf of Mexico for as many as 10 lease sales. In addition to the catastrophic effects that will result from continued oil & gas expansion, new leasing offshore will allow the oil and gas industry to cement its supremacy for years to come and continue to rake in record profits at a time when we should be transitioning to renewable energy.
This is a historic opportunity for President Biden to establish the path forward toward a clean, safe, and prosperous energy future. Take action today to voice your opposition to new oil and gas leasing in the Gulf and your support for a clean energy future!
