Shell wants to drill in the Arctic Ocean. Just imagine what a spill/blowout would do up there. The Gulf of Mexico is still a mess (despite the BP ads that have been running lately). Now we're going to allow that pristine ocean to be destroyed? Bad idea.

Subject: Mr. President: End Arctic Drilling Now


Shell Oil has been trying for the past year to start drilling operations in the Arctic, and already there have been several near disasters and blunders that heighten our concern over drilling in the risky climate of the Arctic. Shell will be trying again this year, threatening to spoil the pristine environment of the Arctic. We need an energy policy that reduces consumption of oil, not increases it.

That's why I signed a petition to President Barack Obama.
