Hello Everyone, 

     I have started a petition asking President Obama to amend his decision to allow drilling in the Arctic region. After reading a Care2 article about the accident that occurred before the drilling rigs even reached their destination, I felt it was time to make our voices heard and try to stop this travesty of inevitable environmental destruction. There are too many times when corporate avarice is allowed to run rampant over the treasures of our natural world. Please read my petition, I hope you will be inspired to add your voice to a worthy cause. If you share my concern for our beautiful planet and the destruction energy corporations want to bring to our most delicate and pristine ecosystems, please share the petition with anyone you know who might share those feelings, in any way you can. Please feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions you might have. Thanks for your support!

Sincerely, Linda Rust.

Hi everyone. This is my first petition, and I'm hoping we can all join together to make it effective in helping to correct what I believe was a bad decision on the part of the President. One of the things that most made me want to vote for President Obama was his stance on environmental issues. I want him to live up to his promises to be a leader in the movement to protect our beautiful natural world. I hope you will give your support to the petition. Let's remind him that environmentally-minded people form a large and important part of his base and that he'll need us in the coming election. Thanks again for your support.

I feel Care2 members should KNOW about the "work from home" ads, RECRUITING "MULES" TO CARRY OUT ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. Just like the Drug Cartels do... A person who was recruited unwittingly by one of these ads, was given in a seattleweekly.com article ...
