Peel off the layers of the National Onion Association and you will find an organization that wants to despoil the Arctic with drilling for oil and gas, or maybe they just aren’t very smart and really believe that drilling for oil in the Arctic can be safe, just like fracking doesn’t frequently contaminate groundwater and emit massive amounts of methane and deepwater drilling didn’t result in the catastrophic Deepwater Horizon spill.
Earlier this year the National Onion Association, being the experts in Arctic ecology they are, expressed their “strong support for oil and gas development in the Arctic Outer Continental Shelf (OCS)” by sending a letter to the U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement recommending that drilling in the Arctic be approved.
The letter was provided to them by Shell Oil’s lobbying and lying organization “Consumer Energy Alliance”.
Maybe the onion-heads truly believe in the old dirty energy industry lies that the climate is not really changing and even if it was, it is just a natural variation in weather. Or maybe their leadership is just corrupt and took money from the dinosaurs in the fossil fuel industry to lobby the feds.
Maybe it is time to boycott onions.
Please feel free to call the onion-heads at 970-353-5895 and let them know that you will be eating fewer onions in reaction to their stupidity and malice.
