Protect our Oceans from Big Oil and Gas

Keep Big Oil of our oceans

The Trump administration's attempt to roll back environmental protections continues.

Trump is scrapping President Obama's work to permanently protect the Arctic and Atlantic oceans from Big Oil and Gas and has ordered the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to develop a new five-year plan for offshore drilling, creating the potential for wide-scale disaster in our oceans.

Disaster after disaster has shown that Big Oil and Gas cannot be trusted. Their track record includes the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989, a failed attempt by Shell to drill in the Arctic Ocean, the Deepwater Horizon tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico, a major oil spill off the Santa Barbara coast, and the oil spill and leak of gas in Alaska’s Cook Inlet. These tragedies cannot be allowed to happen again.

Together, we will not allow this proposed plan to jeopardize our communities, waters, and wildlife. Tell BOEM that the people have already spoken -- no drilling off our coasts!
