A horrible decision from the Obama administration -
From the New York Times: Administration Gives Conditional Approval for Shell to Drill in Arctic
There is no reason at all to believe that Shell, or anybody else, can “safely” drill for oil in the Arctic Ocean. Imagine, for a moment, a gulf of Mexico style disaster in the arctic. It would never be cleaned up. Regardless of any of that, if we are to leave a habitable world for our children and grandchildren we must rapidly STOP using fossil fuels. We have to leave these materials in the ground. A rapid transition to clean renewable energy sources is imperative. We call on the Obama administration to reverse this decision immediately.
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration gave conditional approval on Monday for Shell Gulf of Mexico, Inc. to start drilling for oil and gas in the Arctic Ocean this summer.
