Stop offshore drilling
The oil spill unfolding on the Louisiana coast is a disaster. Please
tell President Obama to pull back his plans for more oil drilling on our
nation’s shores in places including Florida, the mouth of the
Chesapeake Bay, and off the Outer Banks.
The oil slick from BP’s rig is now three times the size of Rhode
Island, with 200,000 gallons of crude per day threatening to cover sperm
whales, brown pelicans, shrimp, fish, and the fragile coast itself. We
must not allow more drilling off of our coasts.
