Bill McKibben Responds to White House Decision on Arctic Drilling

WASHINGTON - In response to a White House decision allowing Shell to drill for oil in the Arctic Ocean, 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben issued the following statement:

“Shell helped melt the Arctic and now they want to drill in the thawing waters; it beggars belief that the Obama administration is willing to abet what amounts to one of the greatest acts of corporate irresponsibility in the planet’s history. Arctic oil, like tar sands, is exactly the sort of carbon we need to leave underground if we’re going to have any chance of avoiding catastrophe.”
