Petition to stop drilling off the shores of the U.S.

The BP oil spill is on pace to be worse than Exxon Valdez, pumping 5,000 barrels of oil into the Gulf each day. This is an event with a terrible impact on marine habitats and creatures - and the people and coastal businesses relying on those waters.

A healthy planet includes healthy oceans, free from the threat of oil spills. We need to stop dangerous ocean oil drilling.
 Sign the petition to end new offshore drilling now.

Dear Activist,
Take Action to Stop Offshore Drilling

Offshore drilling will NEVER be safe. Sign the petition to ban new offshore drilling now.
The oil spill in the Gulf is all over the news.
Right now, it is on pace to be worse than the Exxon Valdez and 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.
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.
It has never been more clear that offshore oil and gas production is a dirty and dangerous business and that our ability to prevent and contain spills has not kept pace with our ability to access oil below ocean waters. Drilling is not safe and alternatives such as offshore wind power can provide more jobs and help solve climate change while never spilling.
Send a clear message to President Obama and your Senators that you demand a clean energy future that breaks our dependence on oil and stops the drilling.

PS. At least 400 species of wildlife are threatened by the oil spill in the Gulf. We need to stop the drilling today »
