Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

"Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea."

It makes no sense to keep going after the dwindling oil supplies of this world AT ANY COST! Why aren't serious non-political and non-self enriching explorations occurring for alternate energy. It's there for the taking but the OILMEN just want to keep the upper Oil Class of people happy until every last drop is taken from the Earth. Then out of necessity (mainly because of dwindling profit stockpiles) they will search for another way to get rich off the backs of the ignorant eager to be the first on the block to sport the latest fandango gizmo of a new energy.

Tell Bush/Cheney Administration:
Stop Offshore Oil Drilling!

Target: Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne

Sponsor: Defenders of
: 24,427

Goal: 50,000

Deadline: Ongoing...

See Full Petition

Officials in the Bush/Cheney Interior Department intend to allow harmful new
drilling in tens of millions of environmentally sensitive acres off the coast of
Alaska, including an area closed to drilling after the disastrous Exxon Valdez
oil spill in 1989. Federal officials have also proposed new drilling leases off
the coasts of Florida and Virginia.

These areas are teeming with wildlife, including imperiled whales, sea otters
and sea turtles. New drilling could destroy these important coastal ecosystems
and the wildlife and tourist economies that depend on them.

We need thousands of concerned conservationists to demand that the
administration rescind this destructive proposal immediately. Sign this petition
today to urge Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne to stop trying to hand
over our coasts to Big Oil!
