No New Offshore Drilling

Email Your Representative Before He or She Votes.

Dear Conrad

Just weeks after the American people voted resoundingly for change and a new direction on energy - not for the failed energy policies of the past ?the Republican leadership in the House has scheduled a vote on an offshore drilling bill.  Did they learn nothing from the recent elections?

The U.S. House is expected to vote this Tuesday on a bill to open eight million acres off of Florida's west coast to new offshore drilling. 

Demand a better energy future ?write your Representative today!

The House is poised to vote on a Senate-passed bill, in order to give one last gift to the oil industry before people like defeated Rep. Richard Pombo leave Congress.  Soon to be Speaker Pelosi has already announced plans to repeal subsidies to oil companies as part of the first 100 hours of the 110th Congress, and Big Oil is desperate to have Congress pass this bill now.

Starting in January, Congress is poised to stand up for real solutions to our energy crisis ?ones that embrace innovative new energy-efficient technologies, create jobs, cut pollution, and reduce our dependence on oil.  Let's make sure Congress doesn't give one last handout to Big Oil.

Why should your representative vote against the offshore oil drilling bill?
o  America should focus on developing new technologies, slowing oil consumption, and reducing the global warming pollution it causes.
o  This bill opens eight million acres off of Florida's west coast to new offshore drilling.

With pro-environment members about to assume control of Congress and of environmental committees, there's no reason to allow the current House leadership to ram this bill through on their way out of town.

We have better energy solutions right at our fingertips; we do not need to drill off our pristine coasts. It's time for Congress to embrace a cleaner energy future!

Tell your representative to stand up for clean energy and coastal protections.

Tell your representative there is no reason to sacrifice our sensitive shorelines. Not when we can take the faster, cleaner, cheaper, and longer-term energy route.

Thanks for your support,

Gene Karpinski
