Aww man, not again!!

Daryl Hannah was arrested today after protesting against the construction of an extremely controversial oil pipeline in Washington D.C., and even though she was sent to jail, she was not even trippin'. LOLz

The eco-activist and actress joined demonstrators from 350.org, Sierra Club and Committed Citizens to take part in the protest against the Keystone XL project that was aimed at getting our prez, Barack Obama, to hopefully forfeit building the pipeline.

Oil Platform EXPLODED In The Gulf!!!

Filed under: Sad Sad

Around noon today, oil production platform 80 miles off the coast of Louisiana exploded!

Thankfully, the thirteen people who were aboard the platform were accounted for and rescued from the site. No cause for the explosion has been identified yet, but Mariner Energy, the owners of the production platform, released a statement saying that "no hydrocarbon spill has been reported after an initial flyover of the incident."

The incident is still under close investigation.

Hasn't the poor Gulf suffered enough?!

Sandra Bullock Pulls Out Of Gulf Preservation PSA After Organization Linked To Oil Companies!

If this is true, then we stand behind her decision 100%! That would be so fucked up!

Sandra Bullock is reportedly demanding to be removed from a PSA for Gulf restoration she appears in because the organization behind it may actually be taking money from oil companies!

Awful!

The PSA (above), called Be The One, was put together by Women of the Storm's Restore the Gulf campaign, which is sponsored by the American Wetland Foundation. That group has allegedly taken money from oil and gas companies - INCLUDING BP!

Her publicist, Cheryl Maisel, claims:

"Ms. Bullock was originally contacted through her attorney to be a part of the PSA in order to promote awareness of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. At no time was she made aware that any organization, oil company or otherwise had influence over Women of the Storm or its message. We have immediately asked for [Bullock's] participation in the PSA be removed until the facts be determined."

The organization, however, denies these claims, and have asked to meet with Bullock to explain the matter.

They've also reached out to others featured in the PSA, including Lenny Kravitz, Blake Lively, and Dave Matthews, so no one else will attempt to pull out!

Founder Anne Milling explains:

"I was shocked and of course very disappointed. However, I do believe that once Ms. Bullock hears and listens to the facts and understands that Women of the Storm has had no connection or taken money from oil companies, I think that will allay her fears and I believe she will rejoin our video because she really believes in coastal restoration. She is committed to that."

We hope that she's telling the truth, and this matter can be resolved!

It would be such a shame to have what appears to be a good cause be tainted like this!

Thoughts??
