Drill, Baby, Drill – Shell’s Arctic Madness

Drill, Baby, Drill – Shell’s Arctic Madness
  • 1 of 3

When it comes to effective industry campaigns, Shell’s Arctic drilling campaign ranks as one of the best. It is so good they have run like a steamroller over opposition to their plans. So it looks as if they are soon going to sink their drills into the fragile environment of the Beaufort and Chukchi seas.

Efforts by groups such as the Center for Biological Diversity have slowed their plans, but the juggernaut rolls on, flattening the opposition. As Dan Ritzman wrote in “One Million for the Arctic”:

The Polar Bear Seas, also known as the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas, are home to the entire U.S. population of polar bears. Even after the gusher in the Gulf, Shell has no viable plan to clean up an Arctic oil spill.

Shell... you are a bunch of idiots. You have no way to protect, let alone clean up the arctic if there is a mess . The animals ' lives are at stake. There will be no time to gather them to clean them because they will already have died from cold ! You people are insane and I WILL NOT BUY YOUR GAS and I WILL TELL ALl MY FRIENDS ABOUT YOUR CRAZY PLAN. Get out before you kill the endangered wildlife.
