As oil gushes into the Gulf and what may be the largest ecological disaster in American history continues to devastate coastal communities, some of Big Oil's strongest backers are still in denial about the devastation.
This week, Alaska Republican Congressman Don Young, one of the biggest protectors of Big Oil in the House, did just that, declaring:
"This is not an environmental disaster, and I will say that again and again."
We need to set Congressman Young straight. Join us in calling on him to stop defending Big Oil and start standing up for the hardworking families, magnificent wildlife and priceless natural resources of the Gulf Coast.
