He might be on his way out of the White House, but Obama is showing no signs of slowing down.
虽然奥巴马即将从白宫卸任,但他不会就此停下保护环境的脚步。

12月20日,奥巴马基于1953年的法律,永久性禁止在北极圈附近美国专属的北极和大西洋大部分海域从事新的石油和天然气钻探活动,以保护环境免受其继任者的影响。

The WWF say that this decision will make it considerably more difficult for Donald Trump to take advantage of US Arctic oil reserves, which is a victory by anyone's standards.
世界自然基金会称,该决定无论站在何人角度都是种胜利,将使唐纳德•特朗普利用美国北极石油储备的难度加大。
