Action Alert: Oppose Expanded Off-Shore Oil Drilling!

Please follow this link (see paragraph 4) for an opportunity to send a customizable form letter opposing expanded off-shore oil drilling (recently proposed by President Obama). In addition to the critiques mentioned in the letter, expanded drilling will fuel the expansion of car-dependant suburbs, by keeping down the price of gasoline, and undermine cleaner alternatives to the car such as walking, cycling, and transit, not to mention cleaner cars.

America needs to break its addiction to cheap gasoline. You don't quit smoking with the help of cheap cigarettes.
