President Obama:

You have the power to keep half of US fossil fuels in the ground forever with the stroke of a pen. If it’s wrong to wreck the climate, it is wrong for our government to be in the business of selling fossil fuels. That includes coal -- and oil and gas.

Signed,

Update: President Obama has just announced that he will put a moratorium on new coal leases on public lands. This is huge news -- and a real movement-driven victory -- but this fight isn't over.

We need to keep all fossil fuels on federal lands in the groundThat means not just coal, but also oil and gas. 

Since 1920, the government has been selling coal, oil and gas on federal land to the highest bidder. Halting coal auctions is a great step, but it doesn't get us where we need to be.

Fossil fuel companies already have five times more oil, gas, and coal than they can burn. We can’t afford to sell them any more.

Fossil fuels have no place in a 21st century energy plan, and our government has no business selling them. Obama could keep half of all U.S. fossil fuels under ground forever by banning government sales of all fossil fuels.

We’ve got the upper hand right now, and momentum is key. Let's turn up the heat.
