Ban new offshore drilling on the west coast

Action: Save Our Oceans

November 18, 2015   Action Alert ID# 300

 

Surfing, sea otters, sunbathing, whale-watching, soaring squadrons of pelicans -- and sticky oil slicks. These are all features of Southern California's sandy beaches, but we don't think the last item belongs on the list. Let's take it off for future generations by permanently banning new offshore oil and gas leases.

Offshore oil platforms have been part of the West Coast for too long, polluting the waters and coating the beaches in sticky goo with sickening regularity. Surprisingly, the coastal areas off California, Oregon and Washington are still available for federal oil leases. Oil drilling deepens our climate crisis and imperils wildlife.

Let's stop offshore drilling now and forever by passing the West Coast Ocean Protection Act, which would ban new oil and gas leases on a coastline valued by locals and tourists from around the world.

"Keep It the Ground" has become the mantra of a new generation of citizens concerned about the climate and carbon pollution, and this is an important first step in that process -- so let your representatives know how you feel.
