While many politicians and pundits are trying to stay BFF with BP, Robert Redford is using the Golf Coast oil spill as an opportunity to encourage Americans to support clean energy legislation.

Redford, who has been tireless in his advocacy for clean energy and environmental protection, recently teamed up with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to record a special video public service announcement. In the PSA, Redford says:

“The Golf disaster is more than a terrible oil spill, it’s the product of a failed energy policy — one that puts oil company profits ahead of people and the environment. America needs a safe, clean and renewable energy, not more oil spills. That means politicians in Washington have a choice: keep bowing to the demands of Big Oil, or stand up for the American people. Tell President Obama to lead America towards a clean energy future.”

Just how do you share your thoughts with Obama? Visit the NRDC’s website and sign the petition telling Washington you want “strong clean energy and climate legislation that requires oil companies to cut their pollution each year would transform our energy system, reducing the risks of oil spills and global warming.” It’s now or never!

Check out Redford’s video below!

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
