Stop Federal Plans to Destroy Coral Reefs
The U.S. Department of the Interior wants to blow up living coral reefs in the Gulf of Mexico. That’s not a joke — far from it. A ruling issued by DOI requires oil companies to destroy and remove decommissioned oil platforms from the Gulf within five years. Were those rigs today just as they had begun — huge towers of metal sunk deeply into the ocean floor — the DOI mandate would make some sense. But they’re not.
