Tell Your Senator: No More Oil Spills!
Next week, your senators return from the 4th of July break.  We want the first thing they read to be thousands of letters from constituents demanding they take action to prevent future oil spills.

We are upping pressure on the Senate to not simply take action, but to take action that truly moves us toward an end to oil spills like the disaster that continues to decimate the Gulf of Mexico.  This means a permanent moratorium on offshore oil and, as BP attempts to stem the flow of millions of gallons of oil per day into the Gulf, we must also stem the unfettered flow of greenhouse gases into our atmosphere.

While the effects of carbon pollution aren’t as obvious as the families of the oil rig workers mourning their loved ones, tar balls on gulf beaches, and oiled pelicans, sea turtles and dolphins, the repercussions of greenhouse-gas pollution are equally devastating, and the solution is the same: end our reliance on oil.
