Last week, the Trump Administration approved Hilcorp Energy Co.’s Arctic offshore oil drilling project off of Alaska’s coast.
This approval marks the very first time oil would be produced from federal waters in the Arctic, and is a crystal clear sign that Trump intends to advance his reckless offshore oil drilling plans.
If left unchecked, the Trump Administration could move to supersede California’s protections and undermine the safety and health of our iconic beaches and endanger our coastal economies.
We cannot let this threat go unanswered!
Sign our petition today and urge your member of Congress to oppose any new oil drilling off of California’s coast!
As Californians, we remember well the tragic oil spills that caused irreversible damage to ocean habitats, wildlife, fishing, and coastal communities who rely on beaches for their livelihoods. That’s why CLCV stood alongside environmental champions Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi and Senator Hannah Beth Jackson to pass crucial state legislation to prevent Offshore Oil Drilling in state controlled waters. But now Trump is trying to usurp these protections and endanger our coasts!
Our members of Congress need to make it clear California’s coasts are off-limits to new offshore oil drilling.
Let your representative know you oppose any expansion of offshore oil drilling. California needs to preserve our iconic beaches and natural resources; these are too precious to put at risk.
Thank you for making your voice heard and standing with us to stop Trump’s dirty energy agenda.
