President Obama: Make Arctic Drilling 'Off Limits' Forever

    1. Patrocinada por

Shell has abandoned its plans to drill for oil in the Arctic waters off the coast of Alaska in 2013. 

It's big news. But just the start of something bigger. Now it's time for President Obama to abandon the idea of Arctic drilling completely and declare the Arctic 'off limits' to industrial exploitation, forever.

Shell was supposed to be the best of the best, but the long list of mishaps and near-disasters from the company's failed attempt to drill in the Arctic last summer is a clear indication even the 'best' companies can't succeed in Arctic drilling.

President Obama and his administration gave Arctic drilling a chance and Shell proved that it isn't possible. It's time we kick our addiction to fossil fuels and deal with global warming decisively. That starts today and it starts with leadership from President Obama.

Take action today and join our campaign to protect the Arctic. Tell President Obama to make Arctic drilling 'off limits'. Forever.

      Not only does drilling in the Arctic ruin the environment and make us even more dependent on fossil fuels, but it simply isn't possible.

      The Arctic land and its animals are endangered and deserve full and permanent protection from drilling for oil.

      Because Russian representatives did not show up to UN hearing naming Russia as Defendants in the case!

      We must protect these waters, home to so many sea creatures, from toxic pollution.
