You Can Protect Our Coast from Offshore Drilling!

You Can Protect Our Coast from Offshore Drilling!

Offshore oil and gas exploration and eventual drilling may be approved for the East Coast later this year, despite the well-known ecological and economic risks.

Here are two ways you can stand up for our coast and say NO to risky offshore exploration and drilling and YES to clean energy!

1) Sign the petition to President Obama to prevent the opening of the Atlantic to seismic exploration for oil and gas. Seismic exploration may injure or kill up to 138,500 marine mammals by 2020. Learn more here.

2) Join hands with us on May 18. On Saturday, May 18, thousands of people around the world will join hands to say “NO” to offshore drilling and dirty fossil fuels and “YES” to clean energy! Hands Across the Sand is an international day of action when people congregate at their local beach or other treasured place and join hands, forming a line in the sand against risky energy choices. Click here to find your local gathering or to form a new one. And bring a friend—it’s fun!
