Despite Known Risk of Spill, U.S. to Let Shell Drill in Arctic

In spite of estimates of a 75 percent or greater chance of an ecologically disastrous spill, the U.S. government is expected this week to give the green light to Shell Oilís plan to restart drilling for petroleum in the Arctic.

Environmentalists who have campaigned against the proposed exploration by the Anglo-Dutch group in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas off Alaska are likely to protest the decision, which was made by Interior Secretary Sally Jewell.

2. Meanwhile we are floating in oil

Oil storage space is extremely limited due to the oil glut.
But we apparently don't give a shit cause someone has been bought by Shell.

God forbid we consider the environment and what hell this can do to it!
