#ShellNo: The Arctic oil battle

Threats of catastrophic climate change rile activists opposed to Arctic oil exploration.
0 Comments

Drilling for oil in the Arctic? “Shell no!” That’s what activists are telling the Shell oil company, which wants to tap the estimated 15 billion barrels of undiscovered oil off the coast of Alaska. Conditions are so treacherous, an oil spill is highly likely. And environmentalists warn pulling oil out of the Arctic will cause catastrophic climate change. So why do it? We discuss Tuesday at 1930GMT.
