Stop Big Oil’s Attack on Five Endangered Species

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.

PETITION LETTER:

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.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    STOP!

  2. What is wrong with our species that we seem to care about NOTHING but ourselves and how much money we make? Instead of becoming more compassionate and caring for the environment and animals … these big corporations are nothing more then greedy, selfish people!!!

  3. Nancy Raymond says:

    GREED, GREED, GREED – That is the bottom line – these oil companies need to be held in check – they are destroying animal habitat with their insatiable desire to line their bulging pockets with more money. It is time they back off and stop ruining the environment and decimating the remaining wildlife in this country.

  4. Jack Carlson says:

    All in the name of f***ING automobiles and oil. Disgraceful, disturbing and infuriating. Humans have cruelly raped wildlife enough.

  5. Susan Fong says:

    Fossil fuel companies do NOT own this Earth. Our Earth was meant to be shared by many species, not just humans. Fossil fuel companies do NOT have the right to destroy wildlife and their habitats. We should be using environmentally friendly clean renewable energy instead.

    • I couldn’t agree with you more Susan. Man has this planet on loan and it is not OURS to abuse and destroy at will. Now is the time to open our eyes and accept what man is doing and put an IMMEDIATE stop to such destruction. Time is not on our side and it for that reason we have to act NOW before it is too late for all life, man and beast.

  6. Heather Brophy says:

    Robert,THEY RAPE THE EARTH FOR GREED JUST LIKE PIMPS. DO YOU SUPPORT PIMPS?

  7. There should be no by passing of the endangered species. One loss is one too many. Stop this now.

  8. I don’t think these fckn bastards are human at all, but some out of the depth of space creatures (rejects) without human qualities, all of them, if they were, why would we have to write comments, to promote humane qualities, in adressing such fundamental values, as to protect the species in a humane manner, that live with us, on this planet.

  9. STOP PLEASE! The greed of these BIG OIL will be the destruction of this Earth! We need to share this Earth with Generations! If that is all they have to look forward to is a land with no trees and animals…why have anymore kids?

  10. “The human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future – deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities and the spread of disease.” — The World Watch Institute

  11. We cannot afford to continue with such abuse to our precious planet. Time is running out and unless we take steps to put right all of our wrongdoings, it will be too late! We have to face up to the facts that what man is doing is so terribly wrong and unless we take drastic action to stop such abuse time will run out!

  12. please, know more just take take take, leave these animals to their homes, we would not like it if some one just took ours. it is about time we spent more time thinking about all animals all over the world.

  13. KatWrangler says:

    OK- what good is a LAW or ACT if it can be bypassed – for the right price?

    This is what you hear lawyers call “The Slippery Slope”. Give Big Oil an inch, and they’ll take it ALL!

    • KatWrangler says:

      If the Powers That Be put as much time and effort, and money, into finding a way to get our energy without killing off everything in their way, we’d be on our way to independence.
      But, that would deny them a paycheck. And that’s SO much more important than protecting our fragile environments, and the lives of animals that depend on those habitats.

  14. You mention 5 endangered species, but only mention bats. I would like to know all the animals involved.

    • 5 bat species… located in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia but the negative domino effect on biodiversity would be widespread. I would like to hope the ‘number’ of endangered species impacted is not a deciding factor – Even if only 1, that is 1 too many.

  15. Lynne McNulty says:

    When will we start to take energy saving seriously ?
    When will we wake up and see what is happening to nature – and stop following the money

  16. Deny Big Oil’s request to bypass endangered species laws for a construction project in wildlife habitat.
    These money hungry oil and gas companies must not be allowed to
    request 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 the precious Wildlife.
    Please this must not be allowed to happen. Think of the precious Wildlife who will become extinct because of these money hungry oil and gas companies. All these bastards think of is GREED.

  17. Marilyn Glasgow says:

    Why should there even be a question about this? This is protected habitat by law. By the time the greedy devils of this world get finished, there will be nothing left for our beautiful animals. They are slowly being wiped out as it is. Once they’re done ravaging everything there’ll be no us because when the animals are done, so are we. These monstrous companiescan rape and reap all they want, and in the end all they’ll have is their money, earned at the expense of animals and nature, Only thing is, they’ll find out that isn’t enough to save them

  18. The love of money is the root of all evil. When you GREEDY people realize that you are ruining our environment, our wildlife, our planet, you will realize that you cannot eat money.

  19. Greedy & cruel humans stop exploiting ad driving innocent animals to extinction!
