If they can't clean up the mess from their own spills and can't avoid significant leakage from the drilling platforms they use, the oil companies shouldn't be drilling the Arctic. Ban BP and ExxonMobil.

I signed the petition. Ditto to many of the comments. These companies need to be banned from doing any drilling what-so-ever. They're done enought damages to our wildlife, nature, etc. Thanks Agnes

When will our government, supposedly made up of learned people, stop drilling before the planet erupts instead of the oil hit?

I love this avenue for saving these places, I wish we could get all publicly owned lands declared wilderness areas so no private entity can touch them EVER!
