Lifting Oil Export Ban Bad for the Environment

Catherine Thomasson, Margie Alt

“Any harm done to the environment…is harm done to humanity,” Pope Francis told world leaders at a United Nations meeting this fall during his first visit to the United States.

It’s this fundamental connection between environmental degradation and human health that has us concerned about the prospect of Congress lifting the U.S. oil export ban as part of any tax package or spending bill deal. Doing so would worsen climate change and threaten our communities with toxic spills.
