Reject Risky Oil Drilling in the Polar Bear Seas

    1. Petition by

      ENDANGERED SPECIES COALITION

The devastation from the Deepwater Horizon disaster is still being cleaned up along the Gulf coast. The oil industry is looking to stretch its tentacles into new territory – America's Arctic Ocean – without the technology or know-how to clean up a spill in the Arctic's extreme conditions. Yet Shell Oil continues to claim that drilling in America's Arctic Ocean is safe, boldly suggesting that they could clean up more oil than in the temperate Gulf Coast waters. 

As the oil industry pushes to drill in America's Arctic Ocean, we must remind the Obama administration that we can no longer rely on the oil industry's "mop and bucket" brigades to protect our irreplaceable natural treasures. Tell the Obama administration to prevent dangerous new drilling.

      Oil like gold or anything we fight over can't be eaten, it gives the wielder power and money or money and power. Anyway it doesn't matter, what matters is it ruins our planet, extracting it or consuming it, or burning it!!

      heh heh - an inability to clean up oil spills ANYWHERE! --- and even if we COULD clean em up, in the meantime they still would be devastating.
