Stop Offshore Drilling Before It’s Too Late – Vote This Week

In the next few days, the House of Representatives will decide whether or not to expose our beautiful coasts and marine wildlife to the perils of offshore drilling when they vote on the Interior and Environment Appropriations bill.

Click here to urge your representative to vote to protect our coasts, wildlife, and environment before it’s too late!

Expanding offshore drilling is a short-sighted policy that would industrialize our coastline, threaten marine mammals, and threaten coastal communities and economies. Offshore drilling would do nothing to ease our energy crunch or lower prices at the pump. Any new natural gas that was discovered wouldn’t come on line for at least SEVEN years! We can’t drill our way out of this problem.

We need REAL energy solutions, not more drilling and giveaways to ExxonMobil. We consume 25% of the world's oil, yet we sit on just 3% of world reserves. The US can never drill our way to energy independence. Rather than offering up our last special places for more drilling, we need to focus on real energy solutions like efficiency, renewable energy and conservation.

Click here to ask your representative to support an amendment to protect our coasts and the manatees, sea turtles, dolphins and whales that call them home by upholding the 25-year ban on drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf that has protected our coasts up until now.

In addition to the amendment banning offshore drilling, there are a number of other important things on the table for this week’s vote on the Appropriations bill, including good amendments to protect clean water, preserve the Tongass National Forest in Alaska, and fight global warming.

We’d like to get your help securing your representative’s support for these pro-environment efforts next week, as well. You can do it all in one fell swoop by clicking on the link below.

Click here to urge your representative to help ensure that the environment is protected when he or she votes on the Appropriations bill later this week.

Please spread the word to your friends and family and ask them to join you in contacting their representatives, too.

Thank you for your help,
