  11. Arctic oil drilling will accelerate climate change at a crucial moment in human history when we need to switch away from fossil fuels.

    Moreover, an oil spill in the Arctic Ocean like the Deepwater Horizon spill of 2010 would devastate endangered bowhead whales, walruses, polar bears, seals and other marine wildlife.

    Please join Earthjustice in urging President Obama to suspend Arctic oil drilling.

    Thanks for all you do!

    Shell Oil is rushing a plan to drill in the Arctic as early as this July!

    Take Action Today!

    Dear Reader,

    Now is the time to say no to risky oil drilling in America’s Arctic Ocean.

    The Arctic Ocean is one of the worst places to drill for oil. It risks a pristine region with irreplaceable wildlife like walruses, polar bears, and bowhead whales with the threat of an oil spill that could not be cleaned.

    Drilling for oil in the Arctic Ocean is a very bad idea. Tell the Obama administration that it’s not too late to get it right and keep drilling out of the Arctic Ocean.

    Mistakes like we saw from Shell Oil in 2012 show Big Oil isn’t ready for drilling in the Arctic.

    Drilling for Arctic Ocean oil takes us away from a clean energy future. The science is clear that we cannot develop extreme fuels like Arctic Ocean oil if we are to reach climate goals and avoid the worst effects of climate change.

    Earthjustice is fighting reckless drilling in the Arctic Ocean on multiple fronts, as we have done for almost a decade. Since we stepped in, Big Oil has not been allowed to complete a single exploration well in the Arctic Ocean.

    But with an army of oil and gas lawyers and lobbyists working against us, we need you by our side to protect the Arctic for good.

    Sincerely,

    Eric Jorgensen
