U.S. Congress: Throw Big Oil off the Fiscal Cliff, Not Clean Energy and the Environment!

    1. Sponsored by

      League of Conservation Voters

We've got an idea for Congress: How about instead of cutting investments that support our families, protect our health, and preserve our environment, we finally get rid of those handouts that give oil companies billions of our taxpayer dollars every year to keep polluting our air and waterways?

It seems like a no-brainer, but right now Big Oil's congressional allies are pushing hard to do just the opposite as Congress looks for a way to deal with the so-called "fiscal cliff." Big Oil's allies in Congress want to protect special tax breaks for dirty energy companies while cutting investments in clean energy, slashing funding for our National Parks and National Wildlife Refuges, and undermining efforts to clean up contaminated waterways. That makes no sense. But unless Congress hears from us now, they might just have their way.

Please sign our petition to Congress today to make sure they throw Big Oil off the fiscal cliff, not the environmental programs that we all depend on!

      if we don't start figuring out alternative sources of energy to level out the free market instead of oil having the monopoly, we will not be in a good position

      I just graduated with a degree in Environmental Science and I think it is critically important to our future to take environmental issues much more seriously.

      I believe in a fair market for energy sources. Big Oil has enjoyed decades of unfair policy and subsidized revenue. People deserve a choice and the government needs to at LEAST not empower Oil and at MOST empower renewables.
