Target: Robert Casey Jr., Pennsylvania Senator
Goal: Deny Big Oil’s request to bypass endangered species laws for a construction project in wildlife habitat.
Nine oil and gas companies have requested an Incidental Take Permit, which would allow them to bypass laws protecting endangered species in order to start a construction project that would wipe out at least five endangered species in Pennsylvania. This is especially bad news for the bat population, of which 98 percent is already gone. This proposed project and requested permit would most certainly do away with every last remaining bat. This must be stopped before it is allowed to start.
Big Oil has been much too eager to take advantage of the 2016 Trump election results to undo any progress we have made in saving endangered animals and improving the condition of our environment. We must block their efforts at every turn. We do not deserve to be at the mercy of their pollution and greed and neither do the animals.
This year, we will have to fight harder than ever to protect this planet and all life on it. Sign this petition now to ensure that Big Oil is denied their license to slaughter animals and ruin their habitats for the sake of greed.
Dear Senator Casey,
Big Oil is asking for a permit that would allow them to bypass all endangered species laws in order to start a construction project. This project, if permitted, would wipe out at least five species on the brink of extinction. This is a prime example of Big Oil’s greed and lack of regard for living creatures and our natural environment.
The 2016 elections are forcing us to fight back harder than ever against anyone and anything that might damage the environment. Big Oil is taking advantage of the Republican victory for the chance to undo any progress we have made in the last eight years, and we cannot allow them these chances.
Please do everything in your power to deny Big Oil’s selfish request and protect the endangered species that would suffer as a result. Do not let Big Oil do more damage than they already have.
[Your Name Here]
