Shell cancels Arctic drilling in 2014:
Tell President Obama: Make it permanent!
Great news! Shell Oil announced it will NOT drill for oil in America's Arctic in 2014!
The decision by Shell comes on the heels of a ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals stating that the Department of the Interior (DOI) violated the law when it sold offshore oil and gas leases in the Alaska's Chukchi Sea.
The Alaskan Arctic is home polar bears, beluga whales, seals and other wildlife. Drilling puts these animals at risk -- endangered by potential oil spills and stores of carbon pollution that could dramatically alter our climate if released.
Even though Shell won't be drilling this summer we know Shell won't walk away from its Arctic drilling plans in future years without more pressure!
Tell President Obama to terminate all current drilling leases and urge him to cancel all future drilling lease sales in America's Arctic Ocean.
