URGENT: DON’T LET TRUMP OPEN OUR COASTS TO BIG OIL!

For years, we have beat back attempts to expand risky offshore drilling along our coasts. But now Trump’s Department of the Interior wants to put our beaches and waters at risk by expanding offshore drilling along most of our coasts. We cannot let them turn our oceans over to Big Oil and risk massive oil spills in our waters.

Opening our coasts to offshore drilling puts at risk people’s health, tourism and fishing jobs, and marine life. Tell the Trump administration that for our climate, our oceans, and our communities, we must halt offshore drilling and protect our coasts!

I’m writing in opposition to the Trump administration’s plan that would radically expand dangerous oil and gas drilling. Drilling off our coasts poses grave risks to coastal economies and ways of life, jeopardizes marine life and increases the threat of devastating oil spills. This is on top of driving climate-wrecking carbon pollution and threatening our clean energy future.

I urge you to abandon your radical offshore drilling plan that would dramatically expand drilling off our beaches. Please stand with people, not big polluters, and stop the expansion of reckless oil and gas drilling off our shores.
