Bush Takes Big Oil Back to the Beach

Last week, officials in the Bush/Cheney Administration announced plans to allow Big Oil to drill in tens of millions of acres of environmentally sensitive waters off the coasts of Virginia, Florida, and Alaska, including Alaska's salmon-rich Bristol Bay, an area closed to drilling after the disastrous Exxon Valdez oil spill.

These waters are home to imperiled whales, sea otters and other wildlife that could be devastated by drilling. Congress has just 60 days to object to this awful plan, so please urge your Senators and Representative to oppose harmful new drilling right now.

Take Action red
