This week, the last shoe dropped.
After months of threats, the Trump Administration announced plans to open new oil drilling leases along coastal areas all over the country, including California.
Six sites along our coast-two in Northern California, two in Central California, and two Southern California are in the plan.
We need your help to respond quickly to stop this nonsense.
Californians have long known and felt the effects of coastal oil drilling. We've seen our coastlines fouled, our air dirtied, and our climate disrupted.
It will require a long, strong effort to stop the new offshore drilling plans. That effort begins with two steps you can take right now:
Tell your congressperson to urge the Trump Administration to hold more public meetings in California about the oil drilling plans.
Plan to attend the February 8 meeting from 3:00 - 7:00 pm in Sacramento and RSVP to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management so it knows the public plans to show up.
The meeting will be held at the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria, 828 I Street, Sacramento, CA 95814.
We've stopped drilling plans before, and we know we can do it again with your help.
Thanks for standing with Sierra Club California and standing up for California's environment.
