House Republicans want to re-open protected areas of the Arctic for oil and gas drilling. At the same time, they want to gut safety protections. Their plan would endanger beluga and bowhead whales, walrus, and ice seals. It would greatly increase the chances of an oil spill in this remote and fragile region. And it would contribute to climate chaos.The Senate can still stop this from happening. But we need you to write to your Senator NOW!
Oil companies have been trying to drill in the Arctic for years -- with disastrous results.
Then, in 2015, Shell tried to drill there again -- and it gave up due to the high levels of risk.
The only reason House Republicans are pushing this bill forward is to help their Big Polluter friends. We need your help to stop them!
Republicans in the House see a Trump presidency as a chance to push through their own extreme anti-environmental agenda.
Meanwhile, at town hall meetings across the country, progressives are showing our Senators that caving to Trump is unacceptable. And it’s making an impact.
It’s up to people like you to defend President Obama’s climate legacy. So we need you to act NOW and stop your Representative from passing this attack on our environmental protections!
