As of August 2014 this is still a situation!! On February 14th a bad plan passed the public comment stage for pre-authorized use of toxic/lethal chemicals to be applied in Alaskan waters for "clean up" of oil spills and other hazardous waste. We have written key US Senators and brought this to broad public attention. File your comments and say NO to this destructive plan by U.S. Federal Government Agencies. These chemicals have already proven, where they have been used before, to be severely detrimental to marine life and to other forms of life. Scientific advisory boards, politicians and even industry experts have questioned the use of these chemicals yet their questions and objections have gone unanswered. Please help to stop this potential harm before any other damage is done. Say NO to the Alaska Regional Response Team's Revised Chemical Dispersant Plan.

SIGN HERE ON YOUR RIGHT!

Additional Information:

Don’t permit the destructive method of Gulf of Mexico oil spill response using toxic chemical dispersants to be expanded in Alaska and the Arctic.

Demand effective spill response practices that result in complete removal of oil and other hazardous waste spills from the environment, in compliance with the Clean Water Act.

All Alaskan peoples (and, all people who reside on this planet) should be aware that current Federal and State agency environmental protection plans for Alaska (which favor industry-paid-science recommended ‘environmental safeguard practices ’) do not employ all available science and technology to remove oil spills. Deepwater drilling, mining and other permits continue to be approved and issued by U.S. and State officials when submissions/requests contain the very same ‘Cleanup Contingency Plans’ that resulted in horrific ecosystem damage, harmed and/or killed sea life, and ended up with very sick coastal residents in the Gulf of Mexico.

Why is the Alaska Regional Response Team (made up of the Environmental Protection Agency, Coast Guard, NOAA and other officials) pushing for such a plan in Alaska?
