Statement from NextGen Climate America COO Dan Lashof on the Obama Administration’s Decision on Offshore Drilling in the Atlantic

Today, the Interior Department announced that it will keep drilling in the Atlantic off limits. Below is a statement from NextGen Climate America COO Dan Lashof in response:

“The Obama administration today stood up for a brighter, stronger future powered by clean energy—not dangerous oil rigs off our nation’s precious coasts. This decision is a step forward in the battle to solve the climate crisis and sends a clear signal that our country is breaking with the dirty energy status quo. It’s critical that our next president continues to stand up to Big Oil and builds on President Obama’s legacy of defending coastal communities and protecting our climate.”
