Green Groups “Disappointed” by Obama Announcement


The Sierra Club and the National Audubon Society are “very disappointed.” The League of Conservation Voters says the President’s decision is “highly disappointing.” An official response by Natural Resources Defense Council president Frances Beinecke creatively manages to say nothing at all.

By contrast, Friends of the Earth sees nothing but sordid behavior. It refers to “President Obama’s Embrace of Dirty Off-Shore Oil Drilling” and urges him to “abandon his endorsement of this dirty practice.”
