Tell Congress to Resist Calls for Drilling

Anti-environmentalists in Congress are adding amendments to every bill they can get their hands on, calling for drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, many offshore areas and other sensitive regions - even to bills that aren't remotely related to energy!

Drilling is NOT the answer to our energy crisis. Drilling in the Arctic and off our beaches will only perpetuate our dependence on dirty fossil fuels and slow progress toward a clean energy future.

Tell your members of Congress that we must pursue clean, renewable energy alternatives.
Dear [Decision maker],

Recently there has been an increase in the number of drilling amendments added to bills in an attempt to solve our nation's energy crisis. Perpetuating our dependence on dirty fossil fuels will not solve our energy problems. I am writing you today to urge you to resist such amendments and instead promote clean, renewable energy.

Oil companies already have permission to drill on more than 41 million acres, yet now they are working to get the long-standing ban on offshore drilling lifted. As it is, oil and gas companies are only using 18 percent of these leases to which they already have access to drill. Proposing new areas to drill when companies are not drilling everywhere they have permission to underscores the immense greed of the energy industry.

Rather than addressing America's real energy needs - energy independence, cleaner energy and lower prices - more drilling only promises more oil dependence, potential oil spills, increases in global warming pollution, and threats to our economy and wildlife.
