In response to the Trump administration’s anticipated approval of seismic blasting in the Atlantic Ocean, Greenpeace USA Climate Director Janet Redman said,
“This is exactly how you push climate change past the point of no return. You’d think we hadn’t just lived through a week of non-stop warnings from scientists that we must stop burning fossil fuels if humanity wants to survive climate change. Trump and his underlings spreading lies about climate science all week was bad enough. Looking for more oil and gas to burn is an affront to families across the country still reeling from climate fueled disasters.
“The Interior Department can still stop this madness, but they need to hear from every single person who is worried about climate change and every leader in Congress who claims to care about the future. Seismic testing is the first step toward economically devastating oil spills and climate disasters like flooding up and down the Atlantic coast. Stopping seismic testing is a must.”
