Do Something Now


Time has come to stop the Big Oil companies from dumping on our beaches! They are allowed to destroy the most pristine ocean areas and kill wildlife. They have been dumping and leaking everywhere since 1969, and before. I have seen their tactics and their attitude since the Isla Vista days. Many righteous citizens formed GOO and tried to stop the drilling.

The history of the oil management companies are at fault every time. The spills and the leaks are unspeakable and outright disasters. The time has come for all people to take a stand and stop destruction. Get Oil Out must take an active task of stopping the horrible acts of Big Oil!

Oil is dangerous to drill, refine, and use. The bad risks are political, geological, and price; it is time to change to new forms of power supply and demand. Time to stop using oil.
