No more oil spills: Hands across the Sand Hawai'i
The ongoing disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is a painful reminder of why we need to move off of dirty oil as quickly as possible. Join Blue Planet Foundation, Honua Consulting, Malama Na Honu, and other local partners next Saturday, June 26, in showing the world that it's time for clean, renewable sources of power. Hawaii's "Hands Across the Sand" activities will be part of hundreds of such gatherings across the country on Saturday. Be part of this highly symbolic event and meet others who care about the ocean and our clean energy future:

Think it can't happen here? On February, 23rd, 1977, the supertanker "Hawaiian Patriot" cracked its hull in storm, resulting in a massive oil spill 300 miles west of Hawai'i. After leaking, the tanker caught fire and exploded, killing one crewmember and sending 99,000 tons of light Indonesian crude oil into the ocean.
