Group slams Obama for Signing Bill Blocking EU Fee on Airline Carbon Pollution

The world’s representatives are now meeting in Doha, Qatar to grapple with the increasingly dire crisis of climate change, a global calamity caused by the rogue fossil fuel industry.

On Tuesday, November 27th, President Barack Obama signed legislation championed by global warming denier Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) to block a European Union fee on carbon pollution from airlines, and the Department of the Interior announced a massive offshore drilling lease sale of 20 million acres in the Gulf of Mexico. DOI estimates the lease sale could result in the production of 200 million barrels of oil and 938 billion cubic feet of natural gas, resulting in 114 million tons of carbon dioxide pollution.
“Facing the climate cliff, President Obama has evidently decided to step on the accelerator. Doing so during international climate talks is especially shameful,” said Brad Johnson, campaign manager of Forecast the Facts, a grassroots human rights organization. “The American people did not vote for a continuation of the George Bush legacy of selling off our country’s future to Big Oil. The president claims to respect science and care about the fate of future generations. His decisions today instead show contempt for both.”
