Tell Congress TODAY: Stop Trump's Offshore Drilling Proposal
Mar 7, 2018 — With the comment period ending THIS FRIDAY, now is the time to #ProtectOurCoasts from new offshore drilling. In order to win, we need Congress to push back on Trump’s reckless proposal to poison our oceans, coastal economies and our climate.
FIRST: Find your elected officials:
SECOND: Call your reps now and say, "Don't let Trump expand offshore drilling in any of our oceans!” - see the full script below.
"Hi, my name is _____ and I live in _____. I'm calling to urge Congressmember _____ to oppose Trump's attempts to expand offshore oil and gas drilling in our oceans.
Expanding offshore drilling will devastate coastal communities, harm marine wildlife, and threaten tourism, fishing jobs and our economies. It'll also deepen the climate crisis, fueling extreme weather events and driving sea-level rise. Expanding offshore drilling is a road we can't afford to go down. Please oppose Trump's plan to endanger our oceans and coasts with oil and gas drilling."
