President Donald Trump and his fossil fuel-infiltrated Department of the Interior just announced their plan to massively expand offshore oil drilling, and nobody seems happy about it. Republican and Democratic governors alike have called for their coastlines to be exempted from oil drilling, but President Trump is already picking favorites. He has exempted his resort property, Mar-a-Lago, and the rest of Florida from offshore drilling while placing millions of people's homes and livelihoods at risk.
Donate $5 right now so that we can fight back against the political cronyism and pay-to-play politics that Republicans have let stand for democracy. With your help, we can fully fund more than 500 local groups across the country to organize and take our government back from fossil fuel special interests.
It is painfully obvious that this administration is happy to take money from the fossil fuel industry, but when their home states are the ones threatened by offshore oil drilling, they trot out the old mantra “Not in my backyard.” We must apply that logic to the United States as a whole, not just states governed by their political allies.
The question is not if a spill will occur, but when. Exploiting finite resources for profit hurts all of us. Our Revolution is firmly in support of attaining 100% renewable energy and immediately ceasing all new fossil fuel projects, including offshore drilling. Renewable energy is cleaner, cheaper, and can support millions of new jobs.
Make a $5 contribution to Our Revolution and help us bring an end to new fossil fuel projects across the country. More than 500 local Our Revolution groups are organizing across the country to ensure our government represents all people, not special interests. Chip in to boost their efforts today.
The American people see the hypocrisy and double standards of this administration and their fossil fuel industry cronies. It's up to us to organize, fight back, and win. Thank you for supporting Our Revolution and protecting our environment today.
