Not an Environmental Disaster? Tell Congressman Don Young to Stop Defending Big Oil


As oil gushes into the Gulf and what may be the largest ecological disaster in American history continues to devastate coastal communities, some of Big Oil’s strongest backers are still in denial about the devastation.  

This week, Alaska Republican Congressman Don Young, one of the biggest protectors of Big Oil in the House, did just that, declaring:  

“This is not an environmental disaster, and I will say that again and again.” 

We need to set Congressman Young straight. Join us in calling on him to stop defending Big Oil and start standing up for the hardworking families, magnificent wildlife and priceless natural resources of the Gulf Coast.

Stop Defending Big Oil

Congressman Young,

As gushing oil continues to devastate the Gulf Coast, your denial that this tragedy constitutes an environmental disaster is both shocking and dangerous.

While national and local leaders work tirelessly to repair the damage caused by this horrific event, your statement undermines their efforts of the rescuers and dismisses the real suffering of Gulf Coast communities.

I urge you to stop defending big oil and start standing up for the hardworking families, magnificent wildlife and priceless natural resources of the Gulf Coast.

[Your name]
