Arctic Drilling Is Insane

Al Gore just said that President Obama's arctic drilling plan is "insane."

With Shell about to start drilling, Gore called for a ban on all oil and gas activity in the polar region, saying:

"I think the Deepwater Horizon spill was warning enough. The conditions are so hostile to human activity there. I think it’s a mistake to drill for oil in the Arctic. I think that ought to be banned."

If you agree, sign this petition to Obama and the EPA:

Arctic drilling is a terrible idea. Don't do it. Negotiate a global ban on drilling in the Arctic instead.
