Stop Trump's Plan to Expand Drilling Off U.S. Coasts

Offshore drilling platform

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has announced plans to dramatically expand offshore oil drilling in all oceans along U.S. coasts. This would include allowing new oil leasing along California's shores for the first time in more than 30 years and in the remote Arctic.

Using the form on this page, send a letter to Secretary Zinke urging him to scrap this destructive plan.

The draft proposal for offshore leasing over the next five years shows that the Trump administration is serious about giving the fossil fuel industry exactly what it wants: unrestricted access to oil and gas reserves buried deep under our oceans. If allowed to stand, the plan will hurt wildlife and coastal communities, and risk even more oil spills and sea-level rise. We can't let that happen.

Act now to demand that Secretary Zinke protect our oceans and climate by scrapping this plan.

Please take action by March 5, 2017.
