no offshore, no Arctic drilling
we must end offshore drilling. The danger and chance of a spill is too great. And this idea of drilling for oil in the Arctic is just cray cray.
Trump continues his assault on public lands and water by expanding offshore drilling, reversing Obama's policy of banning offshore drilling. The federal government concluded that if just one major lease sale in the Arctic Ocean were developed for oil and gas, there would be a 75% chance of a major oil spill in this sensitive region.
the harmful policy of offshore drilling must be stopped in order to save our oceans. Earthjustice

Oct. 2015 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released new air protections decreasing the pollution oil refineries can emit and reducing the health risks faced by millions of Americans living in the shadows of oil refineries.
For the first time ever, national fenceline air monitors will be required - monitors that measure pollution where it leaves oil refinery property and pours into neighboring communities.
The monitors will measure the dangerous pollutant benzene, and if levels are too high, refineries will be required to take action to reduce their emissions. There will now be real information on how much pollution is drifting into neighborhoods, to force refineries to clean up their act.
2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the largest in history. The total discharge is estimated at 4.9 billion barrels.
