Oh to be a fly on the wall of a Shell boardroom this week!
Activists all round the world have been taking action to #TellShell to get out of the Arctic.
Despite Greenpeace Netherlands taking over Shell’s headquarters, Greenpeace UK activists shutting down 78 of the company’s petrol stations, Greenpeace France and Mexico occupying their offices, petrol station actions in Denmark, Finland, Hungary and the Czech Republic and Greenpeace Argentina sending 35 climbers to shut down its Buenos Aires refinery, Shell still hasn’t got the message.
To win this one we are going to need your help. That’s why we are handing this over to you now: we need you to #TellShell to get out of the Arctic.
On Friday July 20, from the moment the sun rises in New Zealand to when it sets in Alaska we need you to telephone Shell to make sure they get the message that they can come no further. Continue reading →
Early this morning you reached 500,000 signatures to Save the Arctic. That’s halfway to our goal of gathering one million people who want to protect the area around the North Pole from dangerous oil drilling, industrial fishing and militarization.
The crew of the Esperanza couldn’t be more inspired as we head north on our Save the Arctic Tour. So thank you!

We’re 500 miles south of the Arctic Circle and the crew of the Esperanza has already come face to face with the dire effects of climate change.This last week we docked in Seward, Alaska to make final preparations to sail around Alaska on this summer’s Save the Arctic Tour. In our off hours, the crew was excited to get off the ship and explore Kenai Fjords National Park. But on our hike to Exit Glacier, we couldn’t miss the impacts of climate change. Continue reading →
In the last month over a eight hundred activists just like you took the time to create a beautiful message for Royal Dutch Shell and our leaders in Washington, DC: Don’t Destroy the Arctic.
Volunteers went to their schools and libraries, threw parties and put in so much hard work to build support for the Arctic. Not content with simply raising awareness, they also lent their creativity to make thousands of beautiful color in petitions. Continue reading →
This Saturday some amazing grassroots activists staged an all night vigil on Seattle’s waterfront. Why? Organizers Emily Johnston and Carlo Voli explained that Shell’s plans for exploratory drilling in the Alaskan Arctic this summer are enough to keep them up at night. They just had to do something about it. Continue reading →
When I moved to Seattle, WA last September I was struck by one lasting impression, and it wasn’t the rain.
Seattle is inescapably a port city. From the container ships coming and going from Harbor Island to the massive fishing fleets docked in Ballard you can never lose sight of the fact that this place is a gateway to the Pacific.
It wasn’t till March that the full meaning of this really occurred to me when I saw one of the harbor’s guests, the Kulluk. The Kulluk is a towering, 30 year old, drill rig owned by Shell oil. Any day now the Kulluk, along with its sister vessel, the Noble Explorer, will sail to the Arctic to take advantage of the melting sea ice caused by global warming to begin exploratory oil drilling.

Sadly, KFC executives have responded by putting a big bucket of denial on their heads.
The company first said that 60% of their packaging in the US comes from “sustainable” sources. Then, they said it was 80%. Hmmm. Then, they started to claim that they don’t buy from Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) in the UK or US.
There are so many things wrong with this statements, we’re going to have to take them one by one. Continue reading →
