Obama, stop Shell!

Shell is moving towards the Arctic.

A recent decision by the Obama administration put Shell a step closer to drilling in the icy waters of the Alaskan Arctic. Amongst the growing industry and investor scepticism about the safety and value of offshore Arctic oil exploration, Shell is desperate to drill in the Arctic to increase its profits.

The US government’s own analysis estimates that there’s a 75% chance of a large oil spill if Shell is able to successfully extract oil from the Arctic. And industry experts say this would be virtually impossible to clean up.This is Shell’s vision of the future. The one they’re struggling to hide.

The good news is that the global movement to protect the Arctic and our climate is growing stronger by the day. And you can be a part of this movement.

Watch and share this film with your friends and family to make sure Shell doesn’t get away with it. Sign the petition and help Save the Arctic!
