Why we STAND FOR LESS–Oil gushing into the Gulf

Last week’s explosion of the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico is a vivid reminder of why it’s important to STAND FOR LESS. Oil is gushing into the Gulf at the rate of thousands of barrels of oil per day. The source of the leak is 5,000 feet below sea level.

The Gulf is being poisoned at a rapid rate.

Our seemingly unquenchable need for oil is the source of this disaster.

When we STAND FOR LESS, individually and together, we can reduce that need and we can find new, cleaner sources of energy.

The Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded late on April 20, 2010 and sank on April 22. Eleven workers have not been found, many others suffered severe injuries.
