Take Action at Oil Change Now:

Less than one month after President Obama threw out a decades-old ban on offshore drilling, we are witnessing one of the worst spills in US history unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico. At least 5,000 barrels (210,000 gallons) a day are spewing into the Gulf, and this could go on for months. Tell President Obama to return to his opposition to offshore drilling. Tell the President and your Senators that you oppose any expansion of offshore drilling and that you demand a real clean energy future that includes an end to our addiction to oil. Tell them the problem is not foreign oil, its oil, period.

No comments:

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
