Some leaders are not all completely bonkers.
President Obama will use his executive authority to permanently block offshore drilling in large swaths of the Arctic and Atlantic.
Canada’s Prime Minister Trudeau will also halt all oil and gas exploration in its own Arctic waters.
Obama’s move includes 115 million acres in the Arctic, and 3.8 million acres in the north and mid-Atlantic ocean.
Great to see two world leaders showing it’s far better to keep oil in the ground.
Meanwhile, Rex Tillertson the head of ExxonMobil (largest oil company in the world) is to be soon-President Trump’s Secretary of State.
