We need to break our addiction to oil. While we need them the oil companioes will be allowed to do whatever damage is required. Surely even they can see how shortsighted their industry is.
This is a wonderful article. The decriptions of the multitude of wildlife swimming along the shores are a delight. The intelligence of the information delivered is a breath of fresh air amongst the rubbish that passes for news.
Thank you Cal as always for your dedication and diligence.

To drill in the Arctic would only Create mankinds worst Climate Change and destroy one of the Four Seasons God gave us to enjoy. Shame on you Big Oil.

ACCORDING TO THE WASHINGTON POST:
By Associated Press, Published: July 31

ANCHORAGE, Alaska Shell Oil Co. is downsizing its plan for off-shore drilling in the Arctic this year amid delays completing a spill containment barge required by the federal government, a spokesman said Tuesday.

Shell now hopes to complete two wells in 2012 instead of five. One would be in the Beaufort Sea off the northern Alaska coastline, and the other in the Chukchi Sea off the northwest coast between Alaska and Russia."

It's little more than a delay, but perhaps the extra time will allow those who love the ocean and the precious marine and wildlife oceans support to reach more people and gain more support. And let's not forget contacting our representatives, forwarding petitions and harassing Shell and boycotting their products!
