Veterans Group Praises Biden Administration’s Executive Orders on Climate, Oil and Gas Drilling
WASHINGTON, DC — Starting this week, a new online ad campaign from the Vet Voice Foundation is saluting President Biden’s executive actions to protect America’s public lands – outlining a plan to conserve additional public lands, and pausing new oil and gas leasing on public lands.
The online ads are part of a five-figure campaign which will see banner ads in The Washington Post and CQ RollCall as well as Facebook and Google ads in Arizona, Colorado, Montana, and West Virginia.
“After four years of climate change denial and disastrous policies that ravaged our environment and sold off our public lands to the interests of millionaire fossil fuel executives, it is great to finally have a leader in the White House who sees our nation’s public lands and waterways as the treasures that they are rather than spots on the map for exploitation. President Biden’s executive orders are proof of that,” explained Retired Major General Paul Eaton for the Vet Voice Foundation
. “It is a new day for our public lands. Veterans and military families have long-championed and advocated for our public lands and environment. We understand the importance they serve as spots of national healing and solemnity and we understand our responsibility to protect them for future generations.”
