Environmental Groups pleads with Obama Administration not to cave into Big Oil on drilling in the Arctic.
"Big Oil has already received an early Valentine from a key congressional committee: a green light for legislation for more drilling off our coasts, including the remote and sensitive Arctic Ocean.
Will the Obama administration follow suit with an Arctic giveaway of its own?
Take action now: Urge the Obama administration to protect our natural heritage and oppose an expansion of risky oil and gas drilling."

EPA fails to protect clean water in Florida.
The EPA had proposed a numeric nutrient standard to clean up Florida's waterways. Now it appears it is set to approve Florida Department of Environmental Protection's standards, which will result in more pollution in our waterways. The state's plan will not work because it does not have triggers to ensure corrective actions. Florida needs enforceable federal limits that will protect Florida's waters from turning to toxic green slime.
Petition from the Sierra Club's Website:
The facts above stand for themselves. One other thing that I would like you to think about is whether or not these environmental organizations are actually endorsing Obama because of his environmental record, or are they simply trying to keep their tax-free status? If you think that they actually believe that Obama will do no harm to the environment, think again.
