Tulsi Gabbard: Another pipeline spill

A pipeline spilled at least 672,000 gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, and almost no one in Washington wants to talk about it. It's the worst environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico since Deepwater Horizon.

While Scott Pruitt's EPA clears the way for coal, oil, and other fossil fuel projects across the country, our environment is at a tipping point. With each new day and new disaster that passes while we fail to act, the wellbeing and future of our planet grow more and more dim.

Sign your name as a citizen co-sponsor of the OFF Act. Following this oil spill, it's even more important that we achieve 100% renewable energy by 2035.

This oil spill should set off alarm bells across the EPA. Instead, Scott Pruitt is trying to clear approval for a mining company to excavate an area the size of the Grand Canyon in Bristol Bay, Alaska, the world's largest spawning ground for sockeye salmon. The Trump administration just doesn't care about maintaining these economic and environmental engines to our way of life.

Despite the terrible decisions and negative consequences that have arisen from Trump and Pruitt's environmental policy, we must continue to fight for our planet and our future. The OFF Act is the kind of landmark legislation that can remake our entire economy with millions of new jobs and a brand-new, clean energy infrastructure. This must be a top priority.

Will you add your name as a citizen co-sponsor of the OFF Act today?

We can make clean water, clean air, and clean land a reality for every single person in the United States within our lifetimes, if we choose to act now. Mahalo for joining me in taking this bold action today. We can make a positive change in the world if we work together.

Aloha,
Tulsi
