Tell President Trump You Oppose His Offshore Oil Drilling Plan

President Trump proposed to open nearly all federal waters to dirty and dangerous offshore drilling – one thing coastal communities don’t want off their coast. Luckily Republicans and Democrats along the Atlantic and Pacific Coast agree: Trump's plan to expand drilling off our coasts is bad for coastal economies. More than 385 municipalities, roughly 2,300 elected officials and governors from every East and West Coast state are solidly against drilling off their coast.

President Trump is planning to advance his overwhelmingly unpopular drilling plan after the November election to avoid political blowback according to reporting by Politico. We cannot let that happen.

Tell President Trump to immediately and officially withdraw his radical plan to expand offshore drilling to nearly all U.S. waters.

Dear President Trump,

I am a voter and I oppose your radical offshore drilling plan. Opening our federal waters to new offshore drilling is a disaster waiting to happen.  

Pursuing offshore drilling is not only bad for our oceans, it’s bad for business. Oil drilling is a direct threat to communities and businesses that depend on a clean coast for their way of life and livelihoods. Prior to COVID-19, tourism, fishing and recreation industries in the Atlantic, Pacific and eastern Gulf of Mexico supported more than 2.6 million jobs and generated roughly $180 billion in GDP. Our coastlines and offshore waters have incredible environmental and economic value – not only for our individual states, but for the nation as a whole.

Threatening fundamental economic drivers with dirty and dangerous offshore drilling puts an unnecessary burden on hardworking Americans. Now, more than ever, it is crucial to protect our ocean resources so they can support generations to come.

Will you immediately and officially withdraw your entire offshore drilling plan? I am a voter and I am watching closely.

Sincerely,
