Is Oil Drilling In The Arctic Worth The Risk?

The Arctic Ocean is one of the most fragile ecosystems on the planet. It’s home to numerous species ranging from polar bears to whales, and it is already in jeopardy due to the effects of climate change.

Given this and the Arctic Ocean’s unique habitats, it’s vitally important that we proceed with caution before oil drilling is approved in the area. Currently, we don’t have enough data to predict the effect oil drilling would have on the area — nor do we have the technology needed to properly clean up or “reverse the effects” of an oil spill.

Instead of full steam ahead, let’s take a step back and decide whether this project is really worth risking this natural treasure and the countless animal species who call it home!
