In 2013, Let’s Resolve to Stop Reckless Drilling
Tell Interior Secretary Ken Salazar: I stand with Ocean Conservancy against Shell’s reckless plans to drill for oil in the Arctic.
After a series of missteps that began this summer, Secretary Salazar has ordered a review of Shell’s 2012 drilling season. It’s the right move. Now we must ensure that this is a public and transparent process resulting in an objective and comprehensive review—and we need to ensure that the assessment addresses a fundamental issue: whether it is possible to conduct safe and responsible Arctic drilling operations at this time.
For now, we must also tell Secretary Salazar to suspend all drilling activities in the Arctic.
Sign the petition now and take a stand for a clean and healthy ocean.
Shell’s quest to drill for oil in the Arctic Ocean has been plagued with missteps, misrepresentations and failures.
The latest episode in this saga? Shell lost control of its drilling rig, the Kulluk, allowing it to run aground near Kodiak Island in the Gulf of Alaska.
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has ordered a 60-day review of all aspects of Shell’s work in the Arctic. While we welcome this review, we’re asking Secretary Salazar to do more:
The investigation must be objective, thorough and transparent, and, for now, we must also tell Secretary Salazar to suspend all drilling activities in the Arctic.
Endangered species need our help.
