BP (British Petroleum) is at it Again!
Despite the catastrophe in the Gulf, BP is moving forward with a
controversial project to drill in the Arctic. In order to get around
the Obama Administration's moratorium on off-shore drilling, BP has
built "Liberty Island" three miles off the Alaskan Coast and plans to
drill two miles under the sea and then six to eight miles horizontally
to tap an underwater reserve.
An oil spill in the Arctic would be far worse than what continues to
unfold in the Gulf. There is no proven technology for cleaning up oil
in icy water and the nearest emergency and relief supports are thousands
of miles away.
Ignoring the lessons of this most recent disaster, Federal
regulators even allowed BP to write its own environmental review for the
project. We cannot allow for history to repeat itself.
Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, has the ability to STOP this
catastrophe before it happens and YOU have the ability to influence
Tell Secretary Salazar to stop BP's dangerous and unregulated drill...
