Keep Fossil Fuels in the Ground

Bernie wants to fight global warming by banning new coal, oil and gas mining on public land. He cosponsored the Keep it in the Ground Act to stop new drilling leases on public land in the West and in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans. “My hope is that all presidential candidates will join Sen. Merkley and Sen. Warren and others in fighting for this legislation and standing up to the fossil fuel industry.”
