WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
This Saturday, people all over the world will join hands to oppose offshore drilling and to support alternative energy sources. Itâ€™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 Clubâ€™s Regional Field Organizer.
â€œNo to offshore drilling and yes to a clean energy future. Itâ€™s something that weâ€™ve been talking about since, well, Jimmy Carter, and we havenâ€™t really got very far.â€
â€œItâ€™s just growing like crazy. Thereâ€™s now 742 different events all over the world; 31 countries outside the United States. And here in Florida, almost 200 places.â€
