A federal appeals court ruled last month that oil and gas companies can begin drilling in the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. The ruling says that the government only controls the surface rights in the national forest, not the mineral rights under the surface.

While the ruling only affects the Allegheny National Forest, this could set the stage for opening up drilling in ALL National Forests.

This means they start drilling immediately unless we act now.

There are two ways we can stop this:

1) The Obama Justice Department must appeal this ruling and ask for an injunction to halt drilling; and
2) Congress must pass legislation to stop drilling in all National Forests.

So I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate and President Barack Obama, which says:

"We urge you to do everything in your power to stop oil and natural gas drilling in our National Forests."

Will you sign the petition too? Click here to add your name: Beta
