'Keep it in the Ground' Movement Delivers 1 Million Signatures to the White House Calling for an End to New Federal Fossil Fuel Leasing

Center for Biological Diversity

WASHINGTON - Frontline, indigenous and climate leaders from across the country gathered at the White House today to deliver more than 1 million signatures calling on President Obama to stop fossil fuel lease sales on public lands and oceans. The event also marked the one-year growth of this campaign, part of the “Keep it in the Ground” movement, when more than 450 climate groups and leaders first called upon President Obama to take real climate action and end new fossil fuel leasing.
