Resistbot Petition: POTUS by selling off vast swaths of the Gulf of Mexico you betrayed us.
An open letter to the President

POTUS by selling off vast swaths of the Gulf of Mexico you betrayed us.

287 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

I've been incredibly distressed to hear about the huge tracts of the Gulf of Mexico that your administration has leased for oil and gas drilling, despite promising you would be a “climate President.” Climate change is a top issue for me—it is for so many Americans—and selling these permits seemed a catastrophic decision. I wanted to believe the argument that you were legally required to do this, but now I’m reading that your administration admitted that a court decision did not compel it to lease these tracts. A memo filed by the US Department of Justice before the lease sale acknowledges that this judgement does not force the government to auction off drilling rights to the gulf. Why, why, why would you do this? Every day we see new articles telling us that climate change is even more dire, destructive, and far along than we feared. I am inutterably disappointed. We worked so hard to help you get elected, and you have betrayed us with this decision. You can make it right by cancelling these leases, and I hope you do.
