Tell the Obama Administration: Don't drill the Arctic!

Dear Friend,

After the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf, president Obama said it was "the most painful and powerful reminder yet that the time to embrace a clean energy future is now."

But since then, President Obama has embraced expanded oil drilling, including in pristine, undrilled areas of the Arctic Ocean.

The Administration just conditionally approved drilling in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas and is now considering a five year plan that includes further sales of Arctic offshore drilling leases.

Expanding drilling in undrilled, delicate Arctic waters is exactly the wrong direction. The Department of the Interior is accepting comments on the plan until Monday -- we need to urge them to reverse this dangerous course in the Arctic.

I just submitted a comment urging the Obama Administration not to include Arctic Drilling in their 5 year plan. Submit a comment now and urge President Obama not to drill the Arctic:
