Pull Pro-Oil Propaganda Off the Air

Target: David Lougee, President of the National Association of Broadcasters

Goal: Remove commercial pushing the so-called virtues of oil from the air waves.

A few months back, the American Petroleum Institute ran an ad pushing the virtues of oil as the next great fuel. Originally aired during the Super Bowl, it now runs regularly. A resurgence from the oil industry is especially alarming in the current political climate, wherein Trump’s administration has already taken drastic steps to bolster fossil fuel industries and weaken the EPA.

Oil is an extremely dangerous fuel; not only have oil spills damaged oceans and harmed wildlife in the past, but the emission fumes from oil pollute the air. We need to stop the oil train before it goes too far. We cannot allow a great revival of one of the dirtiest and most dangerous fuels in history. Left unchecked, the oil agenda will destroy this planet along with all our hard work protecting it. Sign this petition to demand the ad be pulled from television.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear David Lougee,

A commercial by the American Petroleum Institute has been touting oil as the fuel of the future. This is very dangerous, as oil is one of the least eco-friendly fuels in existence, and we cannot allow it to make a comeback. The promotion of oil as the amazing new fuel of the future is a lie, as oil creates spills and pollutes the waters while its emission fumes harm the quality of the air we breathe.

The oil agenda benefits nobody beyond the big businesses who profit from putting the planet in jeopardy, and this ad endorses an unsustainable future plagued by a dependence on non-renewable energy. We need to continue to extol the virtues of cleaner fuels, especially now that green energy and environmental protection policies are under attack. Please remove the API’s ad filled with lies and propaganda from the air waves.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
