    Drill rig crashes. A containment dome “crushed like a beer can." Countless violations of safety and environmental laws. We can’t trust Shell in the Arctic, yet the oil giant is back at it again. Shell is preparing and staging equipment for a potential 2015 return to the Arctic Ocean – a deadly proposition. Even worse: Shell had the audacity to demand weaker regulations for its return. Which is why we’re proud to present the premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winner Mark Fiore’s “Deadliest Crude: Risking It All for Black Gold and Green Profits.”
    America’s Arctic Ocean is the worst possible place to take unnecessary risks. Too many times we’ve seen what happens when oil and water meet: oil-soaked coastlines and wildlife devastation. And in the Arctic, with no known methods for cleaning up an oil spill in Arctic sea ice, we need to do all we can to keep America’s Arctic Ocean safe from Shell.
    Watch and see why the Arctic Ocean is too important to turn over to the bungling crew at Shell! Then tell President Obama: Don’t risk the fate of polar bears, bowhead whales, and the wildlife and communities that depend on a healthy ocean – keep America’s Arctic Ocean safe from dangerous drilling!
