Ted Danson, Kate Walsh and Sam Waterston have joined coastal leaders including Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) in Washington, D.C. to urge President Obama to abandon his plan to open the Atlantic Ocean to industrial offshore drilling for the first time in U.S. history.

Oil exploration off our coast will harm seafood, but that’s not all it will kill
