Join the one million people telling Shell to keep out of the Arctic here: http://www.savethearctic.org/

The same dirty energy companies that caused the Arctic to melt in the first place are looking to profit from the disappearing ice. They want to open up a new oil frontier to get at a potential 90 billion barrels of oil. That's a lot of money to them, but it's only three years' worth of oil to the world.

Previously classified government documents say dealing with oil spills in the freezing waters is "almost impossible" and inevitable mistakes would shatter the fragile Arctic environment.

To drill in the Arctic, oil companies have to drag icebergs out the way of their rigs and use giant hoses to melt floating ice with warm water. If we let them do this, a catastrophic oil spill is just a matter of time.

We've seen the extreme damage caused by the Exxon Valdez and Deepwater Horizon disasters - we cannot let this happen in the Arctic.

We need a ban on oil drilling in Arctic waters. Follow the link to add your name: http://www.savethearctic.org/
