From @Earthjustice: e.Brief: Will Drill Day Follow Earth Day?
Two auspicious anniversaries will be celebrated in the coming week: the 42nd annual Earth Day, and the second year since the nation's biggest oil spill, in the Gulf of Mexico. At the height of that spill, the Obama administration gave every indication that heavy-risk oil ocean drilling would not be tolerated. But in this election year, gas prices are up and Shell Oil ships are underway to drill the first wells in fragile Arctic waters. Earthjustice is in appeals court to prevent this outcome, and we are urging supporters to immediately register their views on this issue with the White House.
