Safeguarded from new oil leases as a result of the horrific 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill, the California Coastal Sanctuary is once again at risk. The California State Lands Commission is considering a request from an oil company that wants to drill in these currently protected waters.
Tell the commission to say no to this brazen proposal and keep this oil in the ground.
New drilling would dramatically increase oil production from offshore platforms and feed more crude into the exact same decades-old pipeline system that failed on May 19, spilling more than 100,000 gallons of oil near Santa Barbara.
Expanding the lifespan of an aging offshore oil platform that should be retired risks another spill and will only deepen our climate crisis.
