Go get 'em! And yes, we'll all pay A LOT MORE for gas...because, naturally, they'll pass on the costs to us consumers.

I don't care.

Shell blames criminal damage for all the trouble. Criminal damage occurs because Shell and the rest of the greedy, myopic bastards won't take the time to educate and employ local people in the refineries and on the rigs; let alone help them to build an infrastructure. The people resort to trashing the pipelines to get free oil to sell for food or use for other purposes. It's not like they deliberately do it because of political reasons. It's Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. STFU and pay the bill.

Aren't we glad that Shell is blundering around, trying to drill in the Arctic? Put the screws to Shell.

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
Chief Seattle, 1854

When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.
Cree Prophecy

Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors
We borrow it from our Children.
