Shield America's Polar Bear Seas From Dangerous Oil Drilling

Offshore oil drilling could soon jeopardize America's Arctic Ocean, a wild and wonderful place full of polar bears.

An oil spill or industrial accident in these remote, icy waters would cause incredible harm and be almost impossible to contain or clean up.

And drilling for oil in this extreme environment would deepen America's commitment to dirty fossil fuel just when we should be moving quickly to a clean-energy future to protect the climate.

President Barack Obama should halt Arctic drilling to protect this beautiful wild ecosystem and our climate.

Please act now to stop this dangerous drilling.
