The Trump Administration’s Department of the Interior has proposed opening 90% of America's coasts to offshore drilling -- from Maine to the Gulf, and from Alaska down to Southern California.
If Trump's plan becomes reality, spills will be inevitable -- and devastating. In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill damaged 1,313 miles of coastline. That's more than the entire length of California, or half the Atlantic coast. Offshore oil spills happen frequently, devastating marine environments, commercial fishing industries, and tourism businesses. Even without spills, offshore oil causes pollution.
Join us February 21st from 3-7:30 PM at the Hilton Garden Inn. We'll be there to submit our comment: NO to offshore drilling.
After you have made your comment, join us for an ocean happy hour at Wonder Garten Bar just down the street--you'll need a drink after speaking with BOEM!
