Excerpts;

“The Obama Administration just released a new five-year plan that puts our cherished Atlantic coast off-limits to Big Oil for now, but opens the fragile Arctic to dangerous new oil and gas leasing and drilling. Any drilling in these pristine waters threatens the Arctic and its wildlife with the risk of a devastating oil spill and will drive more climate-wrecking carbon pollution for generations to come. But the proposal is not final. Urge President Obama to reverse course and take the Arctic off the table to drilling, and permanently protect both the Arctic and the Atlantic from all new oil and gas drilling forever.”—NRDC
