Suspend Arctic drilling: Keep Shell Oil from crashing again.

BREAKING: Shell Oil's ship 'Noble Discoverer' appears to have run aground in Unalaska, Alaska. Thankfully, there does not appear to be any environmental damage, but if Shell can't even control their drilling rigs, do you believe they could respond to a spill?

 

Letter to
President Obama
Dear President Obama,

Please suspend any further oil exploration in the Arctic until Shell Oil and others demonstrate they are capable of both responding to a spill and keeping their drilling vessels from apparently crashing into the shore.

America's Arctic is home to numerous endangered species that will be put at risk if Shell Oil and others are allowed to exploit the region without the proven ability to control their vessels and respond to a spill.

Please suspend all drilling in the region.


Sincerely,
