More Than 1 Million People Urge White House to Stop Shell’s Arctic Drilling

WASHINGTON— More than 1 million people called on President Barack Obama today to save the Arctic from oil drilling. Petitions with more than a million signatures were delivered to the White House, where citizens are gathering to ask the president to stop Shell Oil from drilling this summer.

“Shell’s ships are already on the way to drill in the icy Arctic waters, putting human life, polar bears and whales at risk in harsh, stormy conditions,” said Miyoko Sakashita, oceans director at the Center for Biological Diversity, which has worked for many years to keep offshore drilling out of the Arctic Ocean. “President Obama has a small window to stop Shell from spoiling the Arctic, and that’s exactly what people across the country are asking him to do.” read more

Today, the new sections of the Motiva Enterprises LLC refinery in Port Arthur are sitting idle, victims of a mechanical failure last weekend that is costing an estimated $1 million a day in lost revenue and helping to drive up gasoline prices. The new facilities could remain shut for several months, bringing down the refinery’s capacity to process crude from 600,000 barrels a day to its pre-expansion level of about 275,000 barrels a day. read more
