Judging from the overwhelming response to our last blast, you're NOT buying the bogus exploitation of high gas prices as an excuse to open our coasts to new oil drilling. Thousands of you wrote to your members of Congress to tell them to maintain the offshore drilling moratorium. YAY YOU! Thank you for taking action!
Unfortunately, much of the American public seems to have been taken in by the flim-flam efforts being led by Senator McCain and President Bush, with some polls showing nearly 75% support for lifting the moratorium. This is starting to look like both Freddy and Jason rolled into one.
While we're all hurting from the high cost of gas (embracing our backyards this past holiday weekend), we simply can't let this issue be exploited for short-term political gain. It's becoming even more apparent that we have to fight back even harder to protect our oceans.
And, we have two great weapons to do that:
With your help, we can beat this monster.
Please join us in this fight! If you already have, start a wave! Ask five friends to join us in the fight to maintain the moratorium on offshore oil drilling.
