How Much More Can Polar Bears Take?

Action: Wildlife Conservation

September 16, 2013   Action Alert ID# 116

 

Drilling in the Arctic Ocean could unleash an estimated 15.8 billion tons of CO2 into our atmosphere -- more emissions than from all the cars and light trucks in the United States over the next 13 years.

Despite this undeniable threat, Shell and other big oil companies are itching to begin drilling.

On top of the melting ice and ocean acidification that are already posing dire threats to the Arctic, drilling ushers in the risk of oil spills. A spill could devastate the region and cause unimaginable harm to polar bears and other endangered animals that exist nowhere else.

Protecting the Arctic Ocean not only helps the wildlife and people of the Arctic, it is essential to preventing climate disaster. We must look to clean energies instead of dirty, outdated fuels that only worsen our climate crisis and threaten fragile wildlife and habitats.

Please take action now to urge President Obama to do everything in his power to help mitigate climate change and protect our Arctic.
