Shell is all set to drill in the Arctic—in fact, it’s moving a huge oil rig from Seattle to the Arctic right now.
Scientists know that there’s a 75% chance of an oil spill once Shell starts drilling. And just one spill could irreversibly ruin the Arctic, our planet’s last untouched wilderness area, where the extreme, frigid climate would make oil spill clean-up virtually impossible.
And what’s more? The noise from Shell’s sonic drills will deafen thousands of endangered bowhead whales, gray whales, and ringed seals, sentencing them to death.
