Join “Hands Across the Sand” on Saturday

On Saturday, June 26, Americans will join hands on beaches and in parks and cities united against the dangers offshore oil drilling present to our oceans and marine wildlife, fishing industries and coastal economies, in Hands Across the Sand.

The mission of Hands Across the Sand is to change our energy policy away from its dependence on fossil fuels and into the light of clean energy. The aim is to convince our leaders to abandon expanded offshore oil drilling and adopt policies that encourage clean and renewable energy sources.

There will be Hands Across the Sand events in Long Beach, Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Corona del Mar, Laguna Beach, Dana Point, Capistrano Beach, and San Clemente, as well as the rest of the state and other locations around the world. The event begins at 11 am and the participants will join hands “across the sand” at noon.

    We need oil drilling in the USA – whether by land or by sea – in the immediate term because the only real alternative is nuclear power which is decades off even if a shovel went in the ground this afternoon. Alternative energy (Hydro, wind, solar, biomass, etc) is fine but costly and only a supplement to fossil fuel or nuclear power.

    One possible aftermath of the BP catastrophe in the Gulf is a direct result of the oil rigs getting pushed so far off shore where the dangers and risks are much higher than close to shore or on shore oil and gas drilling where the risks are much better understood.

    So have fun pointing fingers at BP and realize that when you point a finger – three fingers point right back at you!
