Well, not exactly. But it is time we stop letting these people drill wherever they like. How many more BP-like disasters do we have to have before we say 'no'? I vote for 'none'. Received in email:

Santa knows who's been naughty or nice, so it's a safe bet that Ol' St. Nick has turned an even brighter shade of red now that he's learned that Shell Oil is hosting a major international conference on drilling in his North Pole backyard.

Shell is leading the effort to drill in the Arctic, and so far its effort has been marred by oil rigs running aground and being chased away by massive icebergs -- exactly the kind of risks that experts have been warning about. The Arctic is a dangerous a place to drill for oil, with freezing temperatures, extreme weather, icebergs and darkness presenting massive dangers to oil rigs operating in a remote part of the world.

We cannot let Shell's Dec. 5 conference happen without a response, so we're working with other environmental groups to peacefully protest the conference and to demand Shell end its plan to drill in the Arctic. You can help by signing our petition asking President Obama to immediately ban Arctic drilling.
