Senate’s Thurs “Big Oil Bailout” Vote = 455 Million More Barrels of Oil Addiction
NWF is fighting hard this week to defeat an anticipated vote June 10th on a resolution in the Senate that would blow a hole in the Clean Air Act and make it easier for polluters to, well, pollute. (See our earlier post.)
If the resolution were to pass, EPA estimates that America would use at least 455 million more barrels of oil.
Put another way, that’s the amount of oil that would come out of the BP gusher at the rate of 19,000 barrels a day for 65 years!
Watch NWF’s Joe Mendelson explain why we’re fighting to stop this awful idea, and help do your part by taking action!
