Actor Ted Danson, best known for his role on Cheers where “everybody knew his name,” is making himself known on the issue of drilling for oil off of the Alaskan coast.

Currently there are plans on the table to drill in an area of the Arctic Ocean called the Chukchi Sea, and Danson, an Oceana founder and board member, attended a hearing before the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement.

His testimony on Tuesday, November 9th focused on the need for basic scientific research about the ecosystem of the Chukchi Sea, and the lack of response capabilities in the event of a spill— a particularly sensitive issue considering the recent BP spill in the Gulf.

Danson, who has been in Alaska filming a new movie called Everybody Loves Whales with Drew Barrymore, told hearing officials, “If you had done the science to begin with, maybe you would have said, ‘You know what? Don’t drill here, drill there.’” He further emphasized, “It has less impact on the environment, and you can still get your oil.”

Cheers to that!
