Letter from NRDC President Frances Beinecke to President Obama Requesting His Action Following the Explosion of the Oil Rig Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico

The requested actions are: issuing a moratorium on all new oil drilling activities offshore; ensuring the ground rules for future drilling reflect the lessons of the Deepwater Horizon; and initiating an independent investigation to understand the demise of the Deepwater Horizon, the ensuing spill, and its ramifications. The letter also calls on the President to continue to strongly support an energy and climate bill for a clean energy future.
