Tell President Obama to Protect Our Coasts From Drilling

Send a message today!

Five years after the BP Deepwater Horizon oil disaster -- the worst in American history -- the Gulf of Mexico still bears scars from this tragedy. Yet Big Oil is on the verge of getting the green light to drill off our coasts again.

The impacts of the Deepwater Horizon disaster are heartbreaking. Eleven people lost their lives after the drilling rig exploded. In the 87 days that followed, 210 million gallons of crude oil gushed from the ocean floor, harming communities and wildlife throughout the region. Years later, scientists have discovered another environmental consequence -- toxic crude oil from the spill blankets the Gulf floor and is slowly making its way up the food chain. Our communities, fragile coastal ecosystems, wildlife, and climate are too dear to risk again.

Now, Big Oil hopes to drill in the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. Rather than invite another disaster, President Obama must usher in a new age -- where offshore drilling rigs are relics of the past and clean energy, like offshore wind, is our reality.

Send your letter today. Tell President Obama to keep our coasts off-limits to oil and gas drilling.
