Today’s Action: Stop Trump’s plan for offshore drilling with State law

As his final safeguard before leaving office, President Obama issued a 5-year-plan to limit drilling in certain fragile waters, and implemented permanent protection for nearly 120 million acres of shores, including 98% of the US-controlled Arctic Ocean.

But the Trump administration has thrown open the doors for oil drilling in nearly all US waters, including Obama-protected areas. The potential environmental damage is almost unimaginable – but several states are fighting back.

Last month, New Jersey passed a law banning offshore drilling. New York quickly followed…and Delaware is en route. Trump can make federal policy…but states can control their coasts if we push to make it happen.

Call or email your state legislators and demand they protect your waters by passing statewide legislation to ban offshore drilling in your state. Live in landlock? Sign the petition to make Trump drill in front of his precious Mar a Lago before he touches any other shore.

In 2010, we faced the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history when the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig poured 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico for 87 straight days. As a country, we witnessed the real-time horror as the death toll rose: 82,000 birds, 6,165 sea turtles, 25,900 dolphins and whales…a catastrophic number of fish, crabs…not to mention the thousand miles of shoreline wildlife…

And Trump has deregulated the “never again” protections put in place after that spill. Which means “never again” will turn into “inevitably”…unless state government acts quickly.

Email or call your state legislators and demand they join New Jersey and New York in passing a statewide ban on offshore drilling. And if your state doesn’t have a coast, tell Trump to drill in front of his Florida golf club before he touches any other shore.

If we can’t stop the pollution coming out of his mouth, let’s at least stop this.
