“While this is a good step, we urge the Obama administration to harness America’s inventiveness to wean ourselves off all fossil fuels.   The price of our failure will be economic ruin.  Success will be a cleaner environment and improved public health worldwide,” said Oceana senior campaign director Jacqueline Savitz.

Oceana campaigns to protect and restore the world’s oceans. Our teams of marine scientists, economists, lawyers, and advocates win specific and concrete policy changes to reduce pollution and to prevent the irreversible collapse of fish populations, marine mammals and other sea life. Global in scope and dedicated to conservation, Oceana has campaigners based in North America, Europe, and South and Central America. More than 500,000 members and e-activists in over 150 countries have already joined Oceana. For more information, please visit www.Oceana.org.
