The fight to protect the Arctic Ocean goes on

Send a message today!

President Obama has given final approval to allow Shell to drill in the Arctic Ocean. His decision goes against science, the will of the people, and common sense.

The President ignored his advisors when they said that any drilling in the Arctic carries a 75-percent risk of a major oil spill. He ignored hundreds of thousands of activists who came together to say "Shell No" to drilling in the Arctic. And he has ignored common sense as Shell continues to commit one reckless mistake after another.

However, the fight isn't over. Let's not rest until President Obama cancels all drilling and future leases and protects the Arctic Ocean. He needs to hear from you now.

Tell President Obama that we won't back down. It is time for him to come to his senses, stop all drilling and future leases and give our pristine Arctic Ocean the protection it deserves.
