Stop the Fossil Fuel Industry’s Cynical Exploitation of War in Ukraine to Expand Oil and Gas Drilling

Stop Cynical Oil Industry Attempts to Exploit War in Ukraine to Expand Fossil Fuels

Send Your Message

The oil and gas industry has launched an ugly campaign to exploit Russia’s violent and unjust invasion of Ukraine to ramp up new oil and gas drilling on our public lands and off our shores.

The Biden administration and Congress must not fall prey to the fossil fuel industry’s cynical exploitation of this crisis. Rather, this conflict is further proof that we need to swiftly move to a 100% clean energy economy and away from the volatility and unpredictability of fossil fuels.

The oil and gas industry has launched an ugly campaign to exploit Russia’s violent and unjust invasion of Ukraine to protect and grow their profits. Their goal: ramp up new oil and gas drilling on our public lands and off our shores, fast-track new fossil fuel pipelines and infrastructure, and roll back climate action and environmental and public health protections.

That is exactly the wrong response. This conflict is further proof that we need to swiftly move to a 100% clean energy economy and away from an unpredictable economy tied to fossil fuels.

Russia’s authoritarian government is using fossil fuels as a weapon. It’s time to take that weapon away, and protect our families and our economy, by transitioning to clean energy.

As an alarming new report from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) highlighted, worsening climate change is causing grievous harm and growing costs to people around the world — underscoring the urgency of climate action.

The Biden administration and Congress must not fall prey to the fossil fuel industry’s cynical exploitation of this crisis.

Tell the Biden administration and Congress to redouble efforts to expand clean energy, tackle the climate crisis, and achieve true energy independence.
Send a message to President Biden, cabinet officials, and Congress demanding they block any efforts to use war in Ukraine to scale back clean energy and increase climate-busting oil and gas drilling.
