Ocean Champions Take It To Pombo Through The Blogosphere

An organization called Ocean Champions is running Blog Ads featuring a Pombo Pledge at Swing State Project and Political Wire.

"Ocean Champions, a 501(c)(4) organization, with a connected political action committee Ocean Champions PAC, is the first national organization of its kind focused solely on oceans and ocean wildlife. Our goal is to develop a broad, bipartisan base of supporters from which to cultivate political champions for ocean conservation in the U.S. Congress and in key states. Ultimately, the aim is to create a political environment where protecting and restoring the oceans is a priority of federal and state governments." (source)

Take the 'Pombo Pledge' & Help Us 'Sink Pombo'

"Rep. Richard Pombo is "Ocean Enemy #1."

He has used his position as Chairman of the House Resources Committee to try to reverse the moratorium on offshore oil and gas drilling; to weaken the Marine Mammal Protection Act and Endangered Species Act; and to single-handedly block many of the most important reform recommendations of the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy and Pew Oceans Commission.

Rep. Pombo even advocates the resumption of commercial whaling!" (source)

The 'Pombo Pledge' Is Available Here.
