Petition To The Interior Department
We the undersigned oppose any plan to open up the South Atlantic Planning Region to oil drilling.
Offshore drilling is the slowest, dirtiest and most expensive way to generate energy. Opening our coasts to destructive drilling would do little to make us energy independent, but it would threaten our beaches with pollution and oil spills and could destroy our multi-billion dollar tourism and fishing industries.
We believe there's a much better way. Energy efficiency and clean, renewable energy like solar power will save consumers and businesses money today and protect our coastal waters, beaches, and economies for tomorrow.
