Available Only to U.S. Residents. Tell President Obama: It is time to halt offshore drilling in the Arctic Ocean. We need time to evaluate and understand recent events, reconsider whether to drill in the Arctic Ocean, and examine better options.

Available Only to U.S. Residents. Only last week the EPA announced that Shell had violated the terms of an air permit compliance order dozens of times in 2012 in the Arctic, putting the region further at risk. Despite the fact that Shell hasn't even started the riskiest part of its drilling operations, the company has made mistake after high-risk mistake. The grounding of the Kulluk and the air violations admissions are just the latest. After the Deepwater Horizon disaster, President Obama committed to providing the country with a rational energy policy that sets the bar for the rest of the world. Yet, as the events of the last couple of weeks reflect, neither the government nor industry has met that standard. Instead we've seen shortcuts, near misses, and broken promises. America can do better than risk environmental disaster by allowing the industry to explore for dirty oil from the Arctic Ocean. Tell the Obama administration it is time to protect the pristine Arctic Ocean and the people and wildlife that depend on it.
