Urge This Congress to Stop the Next Oil Disaster NOW

    1. Sponsored by

      Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund

The 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil explosion was the worst offshore oil disaster in U.S. history. It killed 11 people, at least 6,000 birds, 600 threatened or endangered sea turtles and countless other species.

It has decimated the local fishing industry. And its impacts will be felt for decades on beaches, national wildlife refuges and other sensitive ecosystems in states around the Gulf.

Despite the catastrophic impacts of this disaster, the Senate has so far failed to act to prevent the next awful oil disaster.

Big Oil clearly wants to delay action on this vital issue until the next Congress. They are counting on more pro-oil, anti-wildlife members to derail real reform and are counting on America forgetting the terrible tragedy that still afflicts the Gulf, its economy and its wildlife.

Time is running out for Congress to act. Urge your representative and senators to pass the Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Accountability Act before Congress adjourns for the year.

To:
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
As someone who is concerned about protecting wildlife and the safety of offshore oil drilling I strongly urge you to pass the Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Accountability Act this congress.

The 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil explosion was the worst offshore oil disaster in U.S. history. It killed 11 people, at least 6,000 birds, 600 threatened or endangered sea turtles and countless other species.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
