The evidence that Arctic Ocean drilling would be disastrous is so compelling.
Just recently, the journal Nature concluded that Arctic fossil fuels must remain undeveloped if we want to avoid the worst effects of climate change. Plus, the government’s own analysis reveals a 75% chance of an oil spill if leases in the Chukchi Sea – where Shell is currently seeking to drill – are developed.
Seals, walrus and polar bears are already struggling with the ice shortage in the Arctic Ocean. Don’t let Shell make things worse! Spread the word!
