What is Hands Across The Sand?
A Message To The World
In the next two days Hands Across The Sand will go International. Any country will be able to plan events on this website. This is a peaceful gathering of the people of the world. Planning an event is as simple as this: Go to YOUR beach on June 26 at 11:00 A.M. in your time zone. Form lines in the sand and at 12:00, JOIN HANDS. The image is powerful, the message is simple. NO to Offshore Oil Drilling, YES to Clean Energy.
The Movement Started In Florida
- To organize a national movement to oppose offshore oil drilling and champion clean energy and renewables. These gatherings will bring thousands of American citizens to our beaches and cities and will draw metaphorical and actual lines in the sand; human lines in the sand against the threat oil drilling poses to America’s coastal economies and marine environment.
- To convince our State Legislators, Governors, Congress and President Obama to stop the expansion of offshore oil drilling and to adopt policies encouraging clean and renewable energy sources. America needs legislation that creates tax incentives and subsidies to encourage the growth of clean energy and renewable industries for America’s future.
An Opportunity of National Importance
Now is the time for America and our leaders to join hands and steer our country’s energy policy away from our dependence on fossil fuels and into the light of clean energy and renewables.
Join hands with us and draw a line in the sand against offshore oil drilling.

Just 10 miles from the nesting grounds of one noisy colony of brown pelicans, more than 3 million gallons of oil are lurking. That threatens species already decimated by the disappearance of marshlands.

The oil spill and wildlife
• WHAT: Citizens who spot affected wildlife should contact the Deepwater Horizon Response Line
•WHERE: Call 866-557-1401. To report an oiled shoreline or request volunteer information, call 866-448-5816.
The Effects of Oil on Wildlife
• Birds and other marine life can suffer from the effects of an oil spill. Even small spills can severely affect marine wildlife.
• Oil spills have different impacts on wildlife and the surrounding environment, depending on the type of oil, location of the spill, species of wildlife in the area, and timing of breeding cycles and migrations.
• Oil coats animals’ bodies with a thick layer that may become stickier over time and adhere even more.
• Some fish are attracted to oil because it looks like floating food. Sea birds, attracted to schools of fish, may dive through oil slicks to get to them.
• Oil that sticks to fur or feathers, can cause:
• Hypothermia. Birds also lose body weight as their metabolism tries to combat low body temperature.
• Marine mammals lose weight when they cannot feed.
• Poisoning of young through the mother. For example, a dolphin calf can absorb oil through its mothers milk.
• Birds become easy prey, as they are less able to fly away. They may become dehydrated and starve.
• Birds sink or drown because oiled feathers weigh more, and sticky feathers cannot trap enough air to keep birds buoyant.
• Damage to the insides of animals’ and birds’ bodies, for example causing ulcers or bleeding in their stomachs if they ingest the oil.
• Poisoning of wildlife higher up the food chain if they eat large amounts of other organisms that have taken oil into their tissues.
• Damage to the lungs of marine mammals and turtles, congestion, pneumonia, emphysema and even death by breathing in droplets of oil, fumes or gas
• Damage to marine mammals’ or turtles’ eyes, which can cause ulcers, conjunctivitis and blindness.
• Irritation or ulceration of skin, mouth or nasal cavities.
• Suppression of a marine mammal’s immune system, sometimes causing secondary bacterial or fungal infections.

We spent a large amount of money on various overpriced, and now also forged art, with worthless appraisals. Here's their story:

The Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance (FARFA) is leading the fight to save family farms and individuals from expensive and unnecessary government regulation. Help us protect our food supply and our liberties!
The National Animal Identification System ("NAIS") poses a serious threat to all farmers, ranchers, livestock owners, and companion-animal owners, whether they are organic or conventional, small or large, involved with animals for business or for pleasure. If it is made mandatory, every person with even one horse, cow, chicken, pig, goat, sheep, or virtually any other livestock animal on their premises will be required to register their homes and property into a database and subject their property and animals to government surveillance.
