The Center for Biological Diversity wants to see how you would say “no” to Arctic oil drilling on video. Make protecting the Arctic personal — make your own short movie about it. Then send it to us and we’ll deliver your message to President Barack Obama in our Stop Arctic Drilling Video Blitz.
This summer oil drilling could spoil the pristine Arctic Ocean, home to polar bears, walrus and bowhead whales. Shell has all the approved plans and most of the permits it needs to start exploratory drilling. In the ice-choked waters of the Arctic, an oil spill would be next to impossible to clean up, but even without an accident drilling is still a climate catastrophe: It will tap a reservoir of up to 11 billion tons of greenhouse pollution.
It’s easy. Here’s all you need to do:
(1) Make a short, 30-second video with your message (download a pdf file of our “No” sign here).
(2) Upload that movie to YouTube.
(3) Send a link to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can see all of the videos which have been submitted so far at www.stoparcticdrilling.org. You have until March 20 to join in a groundswell of support for our Arctic waters before Shell sinks its drills in July.
You can also take action now to tell Obama not to allow drilling to go ahead in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas by signing our petition to Obama.
