Dear Scott,


*Right now the Obama administration is deciding whether to allow future oil
and gas drilling in the Arctic Ocean.*

The administration has a crucial choice to make: It could give the green
light to reckless oil drilling companies, like Shell and ConocoPhillips, *or
it could decide to protect our planet and our precious wildlife like
walruses, arctic foxes and arctic seals by keeping the Arctic off limits.*

*This decision will impact the Arctic Ocean for generations to come*, so
it’s critical that the administration gets it right and protects the Arctic
from dangerous fossil fuel drilling. *This crucial public comment period
closes on August 15*, so we need to fight back now.

*Tell the Obama administration: No Arctic drilling! Submit a public comment

The Arctic is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the planet, which is
already making it difficult for precious birds and marine species to
survive. Offshore oil and gas drilling is a bad idea anywhere -- but it’s
worse in the Arctic because no proven technology exists to clean up oil
spills in icy waters.

*Big Oil companies like Shell and ConocoPhillips want to drill every last
drop of oil in the Arctic.* But Shell has already proven with its mishaps
that Arctic drilling is far too risky, and that the company is hopelessly
outmatched by the extreme conditions in the Arctic.

Shell and ConocoPhillips are already lobbying the Obama administration
behind the scenes. But *if thousands of us demand that the administration
say no to new leasing for gas and oil, we can provide a powerful
counterpoint to their oil-soaked lobbyists.*

We only have a few days until this crucial public comment period
closes. *Please
submit your public comment now telling the Obama administration not to
allow dangerous oil and gas drilling in the Arctic Ocean.*

Thanks for fighting to stop dangerous oil and gas drilling in the Arctic.
