Let's Learn from Google -- Let's Get off Offshore Oil and onto Offshore Wind


Google's investing big money into a massive offshore wind energy super-highway. We have a ton of offshore wind potential in the U.S., and apparently Google thinks it's time to take advantage of that potential.

11 East Coast states could get much more energy from offshore wind than they need. And there's several times more wind energy potential than oil and gas potential off the East Coast of the U.S.

Google hasn't missed these recent findings, and it isn't missing an opportunity to invest in offshore wind as a result.

Isn't it time for the U.S. government to invest more in tapping this massive wind energy potential?

Let your representatives in Congress and President Obama know that you think it is time by signing the petition below.

Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
President of the United States
Google is investing big money into a massive offshore wind energy super-highway.

We have a ton of offshore wind potential in the US. Recent research shows that 11 East Coast states could get much more energy from offshore wind than they need. And that there is several times more wind energy potential than oil and gas potential off the coast of the eastern United States.

Google hasn't missed these recent findings and isn't missing an opportunity to invest in offshore wind as a result.

I think it's time for our country to invest in this clean energy source and get off of offshore oil, especially after seeing the risks of offshore oil drilling this summer.

I urge you, as my representative, to invest a lot more in offshore wind energy and stop allowing offshore oil drilling.

Thank You,
