No More Drilling. No More Coal. Now is the Time to Demand Clean Energy!

Don't just be pissed, demand change:

Tell President Obama and Congress to STOP New Offshore Drilling Now!

In recent months, we have been forced to open our eyes to the awful truth about our dependence on fossil fuels. In April, 29 miners died in a coal mine in West Virginia. A couple weeks later, an explosion on a BP oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico killed 11 people and began spewing millions of gallons of crude oil into the water.

These disasters are predictable outcome of our reliance on coal and oil, as well as increasingly dangerous drilling and extraction practices. We must change course now to create the clean energy future we need to meet our energy needs safely and effectively.

Sign our petition to President Obama and Congress telling them that now is the time for action to stop new offshore drilling and end our addiction to fossil fuels.
