Call now: protect our National Parks from disastrous drilling.

Just last week 42,000 gallons of oil were spilled upstream from Yellowstone National Park when a leak erupted in the Bridger Pipeline. The new administration’s agenda isn’t concerned with mishaps that could result in such devastating consequences, but rather want to drill, baby, drill -- with no regard for our country’s protected air, water and wildlife.

DT and members of his administration have vowed again and again to “slash regulations,” which we now know just means doing whatever they want to our planet for the sake of their short-sighted desire for more $$$$$. WAKE UP, DUDES! Capitalism isn’t sustainable without a sustainable existence on our planet!

On Monday night Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar introduced H.J. Res 46, which repeals rules that were put in place to ensure that safety measures are taken when drilling is done for oil and gas. In more than 40 national parks where the federal government owns the surface, they don’t own the subsurface mineral rights, but can deny drilling rights if they determine that the operation could jeopardize the safety of the environment. Gosar’s resolution would also prohibit agencies from issuing similar protections, unless directed by Congress.
