Dear M4O Organizers
We are at an existential crisis right now – Environmentally and Politically. Forget reports saying plastic in the ocean will triple in fifty years. Plastic is killing wildlife and poisoning people today. Offshore drilling is also a product liability issue – this product, even used as directed, overheats our planet, acidifies the ocean and adds to the plastic pandemic. Half the world’s corals bleached in the last four (hottest in recorded history) years. Hurricanes like Harvey, Irma and Maria are being supercharged by a warming ocean.
Now we have an administration that’s treating our public seas not as a life-support system but like a gas station and a garbage dump, wanting to open up 90 percent of U.S. waters to drilling and spilling while eliminating keystone pollution laws and rules.

M4Os three key issues will be Ending Plastic Pollution of our seas, transitioning from Offshore Drilling to Clean Energy and Protecting our Coasts at risk.
