Fibers.com Offers New T-Shirt Designs Protesting Obama Offshore Drilling Act

Share Article

In response to news of the Obama Administration's Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA), Fibers.com joins with environmentalist groups to protest the harm offshore drilling will cause. The site offers custom t-shirts featuring anti-offshore drilling designs.

News of the Obama Administration's apparent reversal in stance on offshore drilling has been met with widespread disapproval among environmentalist groups. Many environmental activists say Obama's promises not to pursue offshore drilling options were part of the reason he received their vote. The new Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA), while adding protections to the fragile ecosystem of Alaska's Bristol Bay and other Northern Pacific areas, exposes other coastal areas to new environmental risks.

OCSLA includes provisions for drilling in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas in the Arctic Ocean, the mid- and south-Atlantic, and the Eastern Gulf of Mexico. Opponents argue that offshore drilling is a poor short-term solution to the long-term problem posed by the Unite States' energy needs.

"There will be those who strongly disagree with this decision, including those who say we should not open any new areas to drilling," Mr. Obama said. "But what I want to emphasize is that this announcement is part of a broader strategy that will move us from an economy that runs on fossil fuels and foreign oil to one that relies more on homegrown fuels and clean energy."

Offshore drilling opponents will likely deluge the White House with messages of their disapproval, protesting what they interpret as a betrayal of the environment by a political figure who promised to protect it. Environmental groups online will monitor this developing story and encourage their members to voice their opinion of the OCSLA.

Fibers.com provides a simple, economical way for people to create custom t-shirts conveying any message. The site has become especially popular with special interest groups because they can upload any logo and saying they wish, and because there is no minimum order required. Representatives of the company have seen an upsurge in orders featuring anti-offshore drilling motifs.

"One of the best parts of being part of Fibers.com is that we help people get their message out and speak their minds in a creative way. No matter what you stand for, you can create a shirt and let everyone know," said Jessica Markenson, Fibers.com Marketing Director.
