1Sky Campaign Director Gillian Caldwell just released this statement in reaction to President Obama's Oval Office address on the BP Gulf Coast oil disaster and our fossil fuels addiction:

We applaud President Obama for using the first Oval Office Address of his presidency to level with the American people about the key underlying cause of the Gulf oil disaster -- our overwhelming addiction to fossil fuels that leads us to drill for oil in ever more dangerous places, and to look the other way when safety concerns are raised.

Read the rest of the statement here. We'll have more reactions soon. Stay tuned!
