Lawsuits have Shell debating Arctic drilling

Scientists say Alaska's Arctic waters could hide a massive storehouse for oil and natural gas, estimated to nearly rival the onshore discoveries of the North Slope. Betting on that, Shell two years ago spent more than $2 billion to obtain leases in the two seas and mobilized hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of equipment to Alaska.

But after spending all that money, the oil company has been stymied. Environmentalists and North Slope governments sounded the alarm about potential impacts on bowhead whales and the possibility of oil spills. Both sued successfully to block the drilling during the past two summers. More litigation to block next summer's drilling is likely.

IF RICHARD WISEMAN (RIGHT), SHELL’S RULE BENDING CHIEF ETHICS AND NON COMPLIANCE OFFICER CAN GIVE AN ANTI-CORRUPTION SPEECH IN ASIA, DESPITE HIS TRACK RECORD IN SUPPORTING CORRUPT PRACTICES BY SHELL MANAGERS, WHAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH THE HEAD OF BAE SYSTEMS, AN ARMS COMPANY “ACCUSED OF CORRUPTION IN FIVE CONTINENTS”, DELIVERING A LECTURE ON ETHICAL ISSUES?
