Petition To Rescind Shell’s Arctic Drilling Lease

Progressive Graffiti

Fossil fuel companies are willing to burn everything we love.

Right now, Shell is preparing to drill in the Arctic for the first time. If we don’t stop them, it could be the beginning of the end for everything we hold dear – because if we’re willing to let them risk the destruction of this beautiful, vital, pristine landscape at the top of our world, what won’t we let them do?
