Stop dirty drilling, invest in wind energy, and save dolphins

    1. Sponsored by

      Oceana

Oil spills in their home force dolphins to break through a dirty oil slick just to take a breath. In waters around the world, dolphins and other animals are constantly facing the threat of oil spills and other pollutants caused by offshore drilling.

But there is a clean and safe alternative to oil: wind energy. Windmills harness a clean and infinite source of energy, while eliminating deadly drilling disasters and creating three times as many jobs as traditional fuel industries. Offshore wind development is not only a smart idea for our wallets, but for the future of our world.

Congress is just getting back from summer recess and we want offshore wind development to be the first thing on their minds. Tell your Senators that you want to replace dirty drills with clean windmills.

      Cleaning the oil spills and installing wind energy shouldn't be done just for the sake of the dolphins. It should be done for all the oceans, their wildlife, us... hell, we gotta do this for the whole world. We all depend on the ocean one way or another and nobody should ever pretend that that isn't true.

      I"m an American residing in Portugal right now. Renewable energy in Portugal was the source for 45% of the country's electricity generation in 2010! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renewable_energy_in_Portugal)

      This tiny country on the other side of the Atlantic can do it. Why not my home country?
