When will the evil corporations ever learn that we mean it when say that we don’t want them drilling for oil in our Arctic waters? It seems as though they’ve learnt nothing over the years in regards to our distrust in their ability to stop catastrophic oil spills — which we’re still feeling repercussions for in the Prince William Sound massacre, some 23 years after the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Or, that Shell’s Chukhi drill site is the summer home of gray whales, and no research submarine has surveyed this area before, and the plans to begin exploratory drilling risks a destructive oil spill in an area where the biodiversity is relatively unknown and already threatened by climate change?
Two Greenpeace ships, the Esperanza and the Arctic Sunrise, are already on their way to the arctic right now to head off the Arctic oil rush. See what they’re up against in the graphic below.
