350 Statement on Shell & Arctic Drilling


350 Statement on Shell & Arctic Drilling

WASHINGTON - After Royal Dutch Shell announced its intention to abandon drilling plans in the Arctic Ocean “for the forseeable future,” 350.org Executive Director May Boeve issued the following statement:

“Drilling for oil in the Arctic Ocean has always been a misguided disaster; it would worsen climate change and almost certainly result in expensive and damaging spills. Today, thanks to the work of dedicated activists in Seattle and across the world, even the most irresponsible company on Earth was forced to admit that Arctic drilling simply doesn’t make sense.



Thank You so much to all of those wonderful activist! All of your hard work and efforts are appreciated!
