Shell Gets Permits For Arctic Ocean Drilling

| Filed under: Sad SadEnvironment

A spokesperson for Shell Alaska has recently said that they are a step closer to exploratory drilling off of Alaska's northern shores.

The National Marine Fisheries Service issued the company harassment authorizations for whales and seals.

That sounds horrible just from the name alone.

The permits mean they're authorized to work near animals so long as the impact is minimal.

That of course isn't taking into account possible oil spills.

Shell wants to drill up to three exploratory wells this summer in the Chukchi Sea and an additional two wells in the Beaufort Sea using two drill ships.

The biggest environmental issue is that these oil companies haven't demonstrated that they'd be able to clean up a spill in the icy waters of the north pole.

This is not good for all the poor animals already struggling with climate change.

Boo Shell!
