It is believed that the accident in the Gulf is just a drop in the bucket compared to several other BP off shore drill sites that are primed for an even bigger disaster. I believe it is time to send a clear message to the White House that we no longer will tolerate our oceans being used in a gamble that rakes in billions of dollars for oil companies, but leaves the lives of those living in the water and on the coastlines in dire jeopardy.
The time has come for all of us to stand up and say 'we're mad as hell, and we aren't going to take it anymore'! Big corporations have run this country, through lobbying, for far too long. The result has been disastrous for the common man. Life on this planet cannot continue if we do not do something about it's decimation. We can no longer hide our heads in the sand.
Please join me in signing a petition to ban off-shore drilling. The amount of oil in the Gulf waters is just not worth the risk. It's time to force our government to find alternative technology for clean energy. If enough of us stand up for what we believe in, then the change will come. But it will not come if we don't raise our voices in unison.
If you have a few extra dollars, please donate to Oceana, as they currently have a sponsor that will match donations until August 31st, as they strive to find the real impact of all that oil in the Gulf.
All life will cease to exist without our oceans. They produce half of the oxygen necessary for life. Please help.
