Report Details Obama’s Authority to Keep 450 Billion Tons of Greenhouse Gas Pollution in Ground

WASHINGTON - The Center for Biological Diversity released a report today detailing the forms of legal authority that President Obama, as well as future U.S. presidents, possesses to stop new federal fossil fuel leasing on public lands and oceans.

That step would prevent up to 450 billion tons of greenhouse gas pollution from escaping into the atmosphere and worsening the global climate crisis. It would also protect America’s public lands, water and wildlife from destructive development of oil, gas, coal, oil shale and tar sands.
