Overview

Get Oil Out! (GOO!) is a Santa Barbara based public interest group dedicated to the protection of the Santa Barbara Channel and coastline from the deleterious environmental, economic, and esthetic impacts of oil development.

GOO! was founded in the aftermath of 1969 oil blow out at Platform A in the Santa Barbara Channel, and is widely recognized as the first grass-roots environmental group in the United States.

GOO!’s core membership is comprised of approximately 1500 politically, socially, and economically diverse individuals from the Santa Barbara area and surrounding counties.

GOO!’s primary activities include enhancing public awareness about oil related issues and impacts through education, and opposing the proliferation of oil development, or minimizing its impacts, by participating in the administrative and legislative process.
