From Maine to Florida, people along the East Coast strongly oppose offshore oil and gas drilling in the Atlantic Ocean -- yet the Trump administration has just given draft authorization to five companies to use seismic airgun blasts to map fossil fuel deposits there. This despite the literally millions of instances of harm it would do to a wide range of whales, dolphins and other marine mammals.
Please -- add your voice to that of 125 East Coast cities and towns that have passed resolutions in opposition and help us stop this destructive plan.
Bombarding the ocean with 250-decibel blasts every 10 seconds, all day long and for months on end in hopes of finding oil, is reckless and cruel. Nine of the 450 remaining endangered North Atlantic right whales could be injured or killed, federal studies show. And East Coast residents rightly worry about the devastating impact an oil spill would have on tourism, fishing and recreation -- not to mention the added threat expanded drilling would pose for our climate.
