On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico.Sign PetitionSign Petition
Now, an oil spill on pace to be worse than Exxon Valdez is pumping at least 5,000 barrels of oil a day -- that's over 200,000 gallons -- into the biologically diverse and commercially productive Gulf of Mexico.
Thousands of sea birds, dolphins, whales, sea turtles, and other animals are threatened by the ever growing plume of toxic sludge.
As the massive oil spill continues to grow, it exposes the dangers of offshore drilling. We need to send a message to President Obama and your senators to ban new offshore drilling and support clean energy alternatives.
Offshore drilling will NEVER be safe. Sign the petition to end new offshore drilling now.
SIGN THE PETITION:
Enough is enough. We demand that President Obama and Congress ban new offshore drilling today.
