If Shell Oil says they have a plan; why should people question it?

Due to BIG OIL the ice caps melt and now they are standing in front of the line to further their ecological crimes!
This is criminal behaviour beyond words... lock all these eco(-logical psycho-)paths up and throw away the key...
these humans are the biggest danger to LIFE!!!

Wouldn't it be nice if the Administration would question it, too?

Signed all petitions. We have to do our part in reducing oil demand as next time it will be the other oil company, not just only Shell that wants to do the drilling.

Liars--they don't have either a plan or a clue!! They just want money, and it doesn't matter to them how devestated the earth becomes, or how extinct our wild-life!!
Totally disgusting and should be illegal--in fact, if there were any true justice, the fines alone would bankrupt them!
Thanks Deb.

Thank you Deb....Absolutely, this is going to be the worst Disaster of all time.

Shell is never to tell the truth, they just want $$. Every time I go past one of their stations I wish I had fliers to hand out to people getting gas there to go someplace else, since Shell has DISTRUCTION WRITTEN ALL OVER IT. #!# H x L L -- or #!#!y H x L L

Wow! I just wrote a huge paragraph and it disappeared ! In short then, it would be really helpful to if people knew who the hell they were voting for instead of voting blindly and emotionally ! My god, people still continue to support politicians whose track records are abominable when it comes to the envrionment, yet these very people who profess to care about the environment, vote for them. Why? Because people are clueless. Industry will gun away with pathlogical greed - I expect that, but I would hope that people would have some interst in our earth since this is the place they and their children will be living ! My god, if we don't treasure and protect our home, what will we have? ! Thank you again Deb ! Signed or previously signed all petitons.

Noted. Petitions signed. We need to ensure that the artic does not become a place for drilling. An oil spill would be devastating.

Terrific, educational article! Thank you for posting it! Signed all petitions that I hadn't already signed.

Since, as stated in the article, "Shell Oil is still behind on any plan for environmental recovery and cleanup should a spill occur in the Arctic Circle because of their drilling. Their lack of preparedness should not come as a shock as the only theoretical testing the company considered was done back in the year 2000, when Shell proposed the Arctic drilling project.," what makes them think they're prepared now --especially in light of the fact that no further testing has taken place? You can hear the people in the video, who were involved in the testing, indicating that their methods would not work!

Thanks, Deb! I hope Shell can and will be stopped from proceeding with this greed-motivated, irresponsible endeavor.

Thanks Deb- All signed. I fear we have come to a point where there is such a majority of people who have such apathy for the the various government agencies & the various leadership on both sides that I am not certain that we can reverse the damages we have cause.d. It seems as if each party has it's own agenda which when you look at it has rally become one & the same. There is no longer much difference between the 2 parties that people are apathetic about the entire process & wonder does their vote rally count for anything anymore these days.. It is a sad situation.
