As you may have heard ‘Shell’ are planning to drill in the Arctic for more oil. THIS MUST BE STOPPED!
Drilling will destroy the Arctic’s stunning eco-systems and beautiful species like Polar bears, Arctic foxes, Narwhals, Birds and Walruses that live in the Arctic. I have never seen any of these animals in the flesh, but I would love to some day. I would also like my children and children for generations to come to have that privilege as well. Once this eco-system and it’s species have gone thats it! Gone for ever! Also if there is an accident and an oil spill who knows the scale of the environmental catastrophe that will follow, it’s not worth thinking about!
We don’t need to drill for more oil. We need to look forward and find other sustainable options for fuel. There are already other options around, hemp on it’s own could replace our oil needs.

‘If there is serious oil spill under ice in the Arctic it will be very hard, if not impossible to stop it becoming an environmental catastrophe.’
— Peter Wadhams, Professor of ocean physics at Cambridge University
‘Greenpeace is spot on in its aims – and timing… This is an historic moment and the environmental movement in the shape of Greenpeace, has grasped it.’
