This summer, exploratory drilling will begin in the Arctic Ocean unless we stop it. The Arctic must be off limits to oil drilling, for the simple reason that a spill would be impossible to clean up there. The Arctic is home to polar bears, walruses, bowhead whales and other endangered and highly sensitive wildlife; oil drilling in its remote, ice-choked waters would carry unacceptably high risks of environmental destruction and loss of life. President Obama has given approval to Shell to drill for oil this summer in the vulnerable Arctic. In hopes of uncovering new sources of dirty fossil fuels, Arctic drilling could also unleash more than 11 billion tons of carbon pollution — making it ever more difficult to stave off devastating climate change. We have a powerful opportunity now to stop drilling before it spoils the Arctic and its wildlife. Take action now to help us send 1 million messages to Obama asking him to protect one of America’s last, best wildernesses and stop Shell’s reckless drilling plans. - Biological DiversityTo send a message to President Obama, please visit this link: http://action.biologicaldiversity.org/o/2167/t/5243/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=9641  (Photograph by FRANS LANTING)
