100,000+ urge President to End Fossil Fuel Leasing from Public Lands and Waters

WASHINGTON - A petition calling for an end to fossil fuel leasing on public lands and waters has garnered more than 100,000 signatures on the White House’s “We the People” online platform, surpassing the threshold necessary to trigger an official response from the White House.

The petition, supported by a number of progressive organizations, calls on the President to “secure [his] climate legacy by halting all new drilling, fracking, and mining on public lands and waters, including stopping all new offshore drilling in the Arctic, Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic.”
