- President Obama and Secretary Kerry should recognize that every devastating impact of climate change they encounter in the Arctic will only be the tip of the iceberg if Big Oil is allowed to continue their high risk Arctic projects. Approving Royal Dutch Shell’s drilling permits one week and going to the Arctic to show your commitment to climate action the next is dissonance at best and downright hypocrisy at worst.
- On Monday, President Obama and Secretary Kerry are going to Alaska. Their main goal (as we talked about here) is to see the front lines of climate change first hand. Yet at the same time, in the same region, Royal Dutch Shell is now powering ahead with its newly approved summer 2015 drilling season.
- The President’s decision today to give final approval for Shell to drill in the Arctic this summer is another stark reminder of the catastrophic disconnect between the nation's energy policy and our climate imperatives.
- Yesterday, the President released a video that I desperately want to love. It’s powerful, visually striking, and the rhetoric is near bang on.

- For a while now a growing number of people have been asking a series of pertinent questions about Shell’s Arctic drilling operations, which could probably be boiled down to this: Why would the global oil giant risk billions of dollars of its own money, irreparable damage to a pristine environment, as well as exacerbate climate change by drilling in the Arctic for oil that we can never afford to burn?
- This morning under the cover of darkness, 26 Greenpeace climbers scaled the St. Johns Bridge in Portland and rappelled over the side.
- About 75 "kayaktivists" activists protested against Shell’s Arctic drilling on Saturday afternoon, holding a peaceful on-the-water rally against the company's ill-judged activities.
- The Obama Administration should put Shell out of its misery. They have wasted billions on the hunt for unburnable carbon and wreaked havoc on everything they come in contact with in their Arctic exploits.
