Coming Clean –
By Michael Brune –
I’m not going to lie, this week’s election was a blow. That’s exactly why we’re doubling down now, and I need to know you are too. Friends of Big Oil have taken control of the Senate, and they have a 100-day action plan that reads like Big Oil’s wish list.
Our opposition is about to have free reign to implement their anti-environmental agenda with the takeover of the U.S. Senate and gains in the House. Approving the Keystone XL pipeline and destroying proposed environmental regulations top their list.
First up on their to-do list: grease the skids to make Keystone XL a reality, develop a massive oil industrial complex in the fragile Arctic Refuge, open up coastal areas to drilling, auction off public lands to oil and gas companies and approve new fracking drills near wildlife refuges.
Rare species of wildlife already hanging by a thread may not survive this onslaught. Wolves, bears and other wildlife cannot stop the drills, roads or development. They have no voice to cry out against what’s coming. They NEED us to band together to fight back and do whatever we can to protect the last vestiges of their natural homes.
But it’s not over, not by a long shot. We’ve been planning for the worst, and already have a plan together to stop these losses.
A big part of our success will be the ability to mobilize you and other folks who don’t want to return to failed energy policies.
There are 2.4 million of you. There’s power in that number-and we’re going to use all of that to stop what’s coming.
Exercise this power. Success depends on all of us acting together. It starts now.
