It is vital that we stop new offshore oil and gas drilling operations to protect our precious oceans. Oil spills are unfortunate consequences that harm our oceans and life. Our elected officials want to open up more coastlines to the oil industry which puts our lives at serious risk.
The big oil industry has always been more concerned about profits than the damage it does to our waters and marine wildlife. Despite the risks involved with offshore drilling, politicians are trying to open almost America’s entire coastline to drilling and exploration. The proposal stats “to make more than 98 percent of the offshore continental shelf available and “allows for unprecedented access to America’s extensive offshore oil and gas resources.”
This proposal is radical and potentially destructive plan for all of those that care about Mother Nature.
