By now, we’ve all seen the photos of wildlife drenched in oil. We’ve seen Gulf Coast fishermen stranded on their docks, and we’ve seen maps estimating that oil could reach as far north as New Jersey before flowing on to Europe.
It’s easy to feel helpless, but we’re not. There is something you can do right now to help stop the spill: boycott BP.
Tuesday (6/15/10) night, President Obama outlined some important steps to clean up the spill and begin transitioning the US to clean energy alternatives. And when he sat down with BP executives on Wednesday, money was the big issue — who comes up with the money to clean the beaches, to deploy the Coast Guard and National Guard and to compensate local business people who lose their livelihoods. BP pledged to set up a $2 Billion account for compensation.
In the meantime, if enough of us boycott BP, together we can send a wake-up call to BP executives and their puppets in Washington in the dollars-and-cents language they understand.
Click here to pledge to boycott BP . You have the power to help end the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico by making a simple choice when you head to the pump.
BP-owned brands include Castrol, Arco, Aral, ampm, Amoco and Wild Bean Café. We can put the pressure on BP to stop the leak and clean up the oil spill by boycotting these brands. If there is one thing BP understands, it’s profits. They made $239 billion last year alone, and money is the only language they speak.4
Like all boycotts, our power is in numbers. After you’ve pledged to boycott BP, help us get our message out by telling your friends and family to drive past these Billionaire Polluters.
