ENVIRONMENTAL STABILITY

SENATORS: REJECT THE OZONE STANDARDS IMPLEMENTATION ACT

The Ozone Standards Implementation Act (otherwise known as "The Smoggy Skies Act") would reverse years of progress to reduce smog and ozone levels. The Senate number is 263 and we must tell our Senators to reject this bill.

This act would weaken the Clean Air Act and is a massive giveaway to polluters around the country at the expense of our health and the environment. It would also increase the required review period of ozone levels from every five years to ten years. People with asthma, heart disease or respiratory problems are particularly at risk.

As you can imagine, Big Oil companies, the Koch brothers, etc. are fighting this with all out efforts and want the bill passed. We must act to keep this bill (S 263) off the books by contacting our two Senators and speaking against the bill.

Please take action immediately. Thank you.

 

OIL LEASES IN THE GULF OF MEXICO

The Trump administration is calling for the lease of nearly 24 million acres in the Gulf of Mexico for oil and gas drilling. We at SISTERS ONLINE disagree with this and urge our readers to take action. As you know, the Obama administration has promised a transparent presidency so we wonder why these discussions are being held online and in secret.

We believe that this lease of acreage to oil and gas companies will put Gulf state residents at risk and threaten the fight to combat climate change that we agreed to in Paris. Furthermore, we remember the Deepwater Horizon explosion which killed 11 people, spilled over 4 million gallons of oil, and killed many animal and plant populations. We also know that the economy of the Gulf was devastated.

If you agree with us, please contact President Obama and tell him you're very concerned.
