Why you need to Boycott Shell
Acclaimed activist Bill McKibben, famous author Naomi Klein, and Annie Leonard of Story of Stuff fame co-wrote this article in The Guardian; it lays out exactly why Shell is an insane company for drilling in the Arctic, given the predicament we are in with accelerating climate change and the threat to indigenous peoples’ well being and livelihoods. Some are calling it the new cold war.
What’s worse (as if anything could be) is that Obama allowed Shell to drill, saying that he couldn’t stop all drilling. Lame, at best, POTUS…
When things become stuck at the policy level, as they often do, use your consumer power and let’s put our money where our mouths are: boycott Shell and support companies that are life-affirming. And, ask Obama to stop drilling in the Arctic.
