There’s a proverb that says if you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

I think it’s advice the U.S. Interior Department would be wise to heed, but unfortunately they’re not. As our nation works to reduce carbon emissions and combat global warming, the agency is approving more coal mining, saddling our future with enormous climate costs.

Tell Interior today to stop digging us deeper into climate debt. Sign our petition and tell Sally Jewell, the Secretary of the Interior, that it’s time to keep our publicly owned coal in the ground.

We have an urgent window of opportunity before us. Right now, the Interior Department is engaging the American public in an honest conversation about modernizing the way it manages our publicly owned coal.

I believe for any conversation to be honest, it has to be grounded by the reality that we have to transition away from coal to save our climate. That’s why today, we’re releasing a report detailing the steps Interior has to take to end the federal coal program.

But we need your help to ensure Sally Jewell gets the message. Sign our petition today and tell our federal government to get out of the coal business.

I can’t stress enough how high the stakes are here. As President Obama this week announced groundbreaking rules to curb carbon pollution from smokestacks, the Interior Department is rubberstamping more mining.

It’s unconscionable that the Interior Department would be so out of step with our President.

But this is our coal and we have a chance to turn Interior around. Sign our petition and we’ll deliver the word to Sally Jewell: it’s time for an end to more mining.

For our future, it’s time to keep it in the ground!

For the Wild,
