We, the undersigned, OPPOSE the Trump Administration's proposal to open United States coastal waters to oil and gas drilling.
As Californians, our coast is one of our most precious resources, and it is our sacred obligation to protect it. From the Santa Barbara spill in 1969 to the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, it is evident that drilling for oil and gas is dirty and dangerous. Drilling for oil and gas offshore puts coastal communities at risk -- and burning oil and gas anywhere puts the future of our planet at risk.
The president’s proposal to open U.S. coastal waters to more oil and gas drilling is a direct threat to our beaches, to our economy, and to our way of life.
