Oil

Response to President Obama's Oval Office Address 

We share the President's grief over the human cost of this tragedy and we agree with the President when he said, "The millions of gallons of oil that have spilled into the Gulf of Mexico are more like an epidemic."

We must make sure we don't just treat the symptoms, but that we also find a cure--and that means ending our dependence on oil.

Oil

With an estimated 20,000,000 gallons of oil already contaminating the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and threatening the environmental and economical future of our Gulf Coast states, it is important for us to let our political leaders know that we don't want this to happen again.  Lend your voice to this cause and sign the petition at Oceana to stop all future off-shore drilling for oil.  We need to encourage our politicians to pursue cleaner, more sustainable energy generating sources such as wind and solar.

There is also a short video about the effects of the oil spill in the region.  Warning, some of the images are disturbing.
