The Arctic Ocean's pristine waters are in danger. No technology currently exists to clean up oil spilled in the region home to endangered whales, polar bears, seals and other wildlife.

Demand a more cautious approach to offshore drilling in the Arctic. Drilling in the Arctic isn't worth the risk!

Dear Sec. Jewell:

Allowing oil drilling and development in the pristine and remote waters of America's Arctic Ocean is a risky and unnecessary venture. Government scientists agree that more data is needed to fully understand the impacts of an oil spill in this sensitive region. Given this, I urge you to rescind the Chukchi Sea lease Sale 193 leases and gather vital missing baseline data and oil spill response information before moving forward with leasing and drilling in the Arctic Ocean.

The rush to allow oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean puts a sensitive ecosystem at unnecessary risk. It threatens endangered and threatened species, as well as Native communities.

Please consider the impacts of your decision to open the Arctic Ocean to oil drilling. Just over a year ago, a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico devastated that region. Don't make the same mistake twice by opening the Arctic Ocean to unsafe oil drilling.

Aug 29, 2014 Marilyn Klein We don't want drilling and contaminated water anywhere near our homes, why do we think we can do this to these animals? Oil spills occur more frequently than reported. It's time to put a stop to drilling until we can prevent this destruction.
