OCEAN CONSERVANCY N.G.O. PLEA FOR ACTION TO STOP OIL DRILLING: PLEASE SIGN.
2 years ago

 

Drilling for oil in the Arctic Ocean would be incredibly risky. The Arctic Ocean is prone to hurricane-force storms, 20-foot swells, sea ice up to 25 feet thick, sub-zero temperatures and months-long darkness. Offshore drilling could lead to a major oil spill that would devastate the Arctic ecosystem, people and wildlife. At present, oil and gas companies haven’t shown they can effectively clean up a major oil spill in real-world Arctic conditions.
