This Saturday, people all over the world will join hands to oppose offshore drilling and to support alternative energy sources. It’s called Hands Across the Sand and is an extension of a coordinated event that began earlier this year in Florida.

Phil Compton is the Sierra Club’s Regional Field Organizer.

“No to offshore drilling and yes to a clean energy future. It’s something that we’ve been talking about since, well, Jimmy Carter, and we haven’t really got very far.”

“It’s just growing like crazy. There’s now 742 different events all over the world; 31 countries outside the United States. And here in Florida, almost 200 places.”
