Since President Obama took office,
over 10 Million acres
of public lands and
over 15 Million acres
of public offshore waters in the Gulf have been turned over to energy corporations for fossil fuel extraction.

Potentially worth millions in profit, these leases cost the richest companies as little as
$1.50 an acre.

What do we get?

Decades of pollution, oil spills, contaminated water, and catastrophic climate change.
