Not My Pelican!

More Gruesome Shots Here

What’s BP Oil doing about the effects of filling the Gulf and Atlantic Oceans with their oil?  What two things can you do?

1.)  British Petroleum (BP) rep Randy Prescott made a comment, “Louisana isn’t the only place that has shrimp.”   His office number is (713)323-4093 his email is randy.prescott@bp.com . Give him a call or send an email.  NOW.  Please.

2.)  Of course, you can nudge your senators and representatives to pass Obama’s new Clean Energy Bill too! EMAIL YOUR SENATORS HERE – TAKES LESS THAN TWO MINUTES – Just enter your Zip Code and send your email HERE.

WHAT I WROTE (Cut and Paste or Edit) — Support the Clean Energy Act

Dear Representatives Schumer and Gillibrand:

The first law of ecology states that everything is connected to everything else. People as well as animals depend on a healthy balance of the ecosystem for survival. An appreciation of this systemic connectivity requires a meaningful response to the current crisis.

As we watch the recent BP disaster unfold and the effects make their way into our own Atlantic ocean, it is becoming ever-more clear that protected waters are more imperative than ever.

The House has passed an energy bill already but legislation has stalled in the Senate. I strongly urge you to let your senators know — right now — that enough is enough! President Obama notes, “The time has come, once and for all, for this nation to fully embrace a clean energy future.”

Don’t give Big Oil and Dirty Coal a bailout. Please support the Clean Energy Bill and secure our chance to build a clean energy future.

I’ll leave you with the words of Thomas Fuller, “We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.” Please help with this project so that future generations don’t remember us for the wrong reasons. Thanks for your time and thoughtfulness on this dire matter—the clock is not stopping, neither should we.

Sincerely,

Prof. Amy King
