Speak Up About Offshore Drilling

Ask your elected officials in Congress to support the Coastal Anti-Drilling act.

President Trump announced his plans to open up vast areas of coastal waters to offshore drilling earlier this month. This week, you can act on climate change by calling your senators and representatives and asking them to support the Coastal Anti-Drilling act (H.R. 2272 and S. 999), which would oppose Trump’s offshore drilling plans. It takes just a few minutes and could make a big difference.

Here’s a sample script for calling your Member of the House:

“I’m calling to express my shock at Trump’s decision to open US coastal waters to offshore drilling. I ask [REP NAME] to support H.R. 2272, the COAST Anti-Drilling Act, to protect our fragile coastal regions.”

And here’s a sample script for calling your Senators:

“I’m calling to express my shock at Trump’s decision to open US coastal waters to offshore drilling. I ask [SENATOR NAME] to support S. 999, the COAST Anti-Drilling Act, to protect our fragile coastal regions.”
