Reject Risky Oil Drilling in the Polar Bear Seas

This petition had 262 supporters

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.
