←Tell President Obama to end all plans for offshore drilling

Watch Firedoglake's new TV ad against expanded offshore drilling:

Oil just hit land in Louisiana, while the sunken oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico continues to gush more than 200,000 gallons of oil a day into the ocean. 

There will be untold devastation to wildlife and the environment for years to come.

Offshore oil drilling is far too dangerous as it stands. To expand offshore drilling shouldn't be considered in light of the BP oil disaster. But that's exactly what President Obama plans to do.

Sign our petition to President Obama:

"210,000 gallons of oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico each day. 2,500 square miles of oil slicks. 11 dead workers.

The oil rig disaster proves offshore drilling is too risky. Cancel your plans to expand offshore drilling and invest in clean energy instead."

If Obama moves forward with expanded offshore drilling, this disaster will only be the beginning. Join us in saying no to offshore drilling.
