Say NO to Risky Arctic Drilling - Ocean Conservancy

Say NO to Risky Arctic Drilling - Ocean Conservancy | Garry Rogers | Scoop.it

The U.S. government is starting to prepare a five-year program—spanning the years 2017 to 2022—that could open the Arctic Ocean to oil and gas drilling. Stand with us against new oil and gas leasing and protect the animals and people who depend on a clean, healthy Arctic Ocean.

Tell the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to say no to risky Arctic drilling.

Garry Rogers's insight:

Fossil fuels pollute our air and water.  Overfishing, ocean acidification, and other human activities are already harming marine life.  Let's stop looking for oil and clean up the mess we've already made.  Please sign the petition.

Late June 2014: Arctic in Hot Water as Sea Ice Thins and Tundra Fires Erupt

Late June 2014: Arctic in Hot Water as Sea Ice Thins and Tundra Fires Erupt | Garry Rogers | Scoop.it

"Atmospheric warming due to human-caused climate change. It's the general measure we've used to track a devastating and ongoing heat amplification due to a terrible greenhouse gas emission. But if we were to look for where the greatest amount of that heat has accumulated, it would be in the world’s oceans. For from its air-contacting surface to its depths thousands of meters below, the World Ocean has captured 93.4% of the total heat forcing humans have already unleashed. The remainder is almost evenly divided between the atmosphere, the continents, and the ice."

Garry Rogers's insight:
