The BP Deepwater Horizon drilling-rig disaster is expected to become one of the largest oil disasters in North American history. It has claimed the lives of 11 workers and now threatens Gulf coast waters, beaches, wildlife and communities.
We need President Obama to stop all new drilling off America's coasts immediately and permanently. The Gulf coast will be impacted by this tragedy for years to come and President Obama has the power to make sure this never happens again.
Instead of risking our lives, our coasts, our clean air, and our security by perpetuating our addiction to oil, it's time to build a clean energy economy that means more jobs, less pollution, and real energy independence
Sign this petition and tell President Obama stop the expansion of is dirty, dangerous, and deadly offshore oil drilling -- permanently.
- President of the United States
The BP Deepwater Horizon oil-rig disaster is a sad and stark reminder that oil is a dirty, dangerous, and deadly energy source that has no place in a 21st-century energy economy.
I urge you to engage every resource available to address the immediate cleanup and recovery needs of Gulf Coast residents, businesses, wildlife, and marine life.
I've had enough -- we need a commitment to end all new proposals for offshore oil drilling and permanently protect our coasts. Instead of risking our lives, our coasts, our clean air, and our security by perpetuating our addiction to oil, it's time to build a clean-energy economy that means more jobs, less pollution, and real energy independence.
