Currently we the people and our planet, the ongoing climate change with its impacts, Arctic zone and its ice is very important in reflecting incoming solar radiation back to the space, the oil companies include shell and BP wants to take advantage of melting ice so as to get a chance to drill oil in area, 90 billion barrel of oil are expected to be used for just 3 yrs, this will led to increase of Global warming since the use fossil fuel, The drilling will not affect polar bears only but also human and our planet at large.
Lets join hands in pressurizing oil drilling companies to stop drilling plans in Arctic.

One of the major responsible for this are industries and businesses which keeps on expanding all the time. Even for attending meetings (once in a month or so) they have offices at different locations. They can save the energy utilized there by having virtual offices.

The resources in question are largely carbon-based and their extraction will only compound the huge adverse effects that carbon-based energy consumption is having on the polar regions and globally. The short-sightedness of pillaging the poles for immediate economic gain, the effect of which will ultimately result in severe economic hardship later due to climate change, is astounding.

Do you not believe that we are getting better at managing the issue of excessive oil consumption and needless waste in a bid to also help defend against climate change? I believe that it not only about preventative measures to manage oil sourcing but also the handlgin of resources after it has reached the masses like the hauliers mentioned in this article:
