Against Arctic Drilling – Save the Arctic

Screen Shot 2014-10-13 at 15.34.55Save the Arctic is a Greenpeace campaign to protect the Arctic from a new rush on Arctic oil from the same dirty energy companies that caused the Arctic to melt in the first place. Shell, BP, Exxon, Gazprom, Rosneft and others want to risk a devastating oil spill for only three years’ worth of oil. There is no government or army to protect the Arctic, only countries and companies looking to carve it up, so Greenpeace are sending two ships and a giant petition to call for a global sanctuary around the North Pole and to ban offshore drilling and destructive industries in the Arctic.
