Cancel New Gulf of Mexico Fossil Fuel Lease Sale

Sign the petition below and join NRDC, local Gulf Coast residents, and other campaigners, in an urgent request to the Obama administration that it cancel its August 24th offshore drilling auction for the Gulf of Mexico.

Historic flooding in Louisiana has caused billions in damage, killed at least 11 people and displaced tens of thousands. And it's the kind of disaster we can expect to see more of in the future because of climate change. Yet, the Obama Administration has schedule an offshore oil and gas lease sale for the Gulf of Mexico that will only further America's addiction to climate-busting fossil fuels.

As this poignant letter from a Gulf Coast mother says, the "1,000 year" storm that disastrously flooded the region this week "could become normal if we don't act now" to stop drilling that drives climate catastrophe. Holding this auction, with tens of thousands still evacuated from their homes, is like "rubbing salt in the wounds of a region already in a state of emergency."
