Obama gives Shell green light for Arctic drilling

Arctic drilling: The Obama administration has given Shell permission to drill for hydrocarbons off the  northwest coast of Alaska. The decision has outraged environmentalists who have long resisted drilling in the region to protect wildlife and to avoid any further global warming problems. “Issuing Shell permission to drill in the Arctic is the wrong decision, but our fight is far from over, “said the executive director of the Sierra Club, Michael Brune. “We will continue to call on President Obama to protect the Arctic and our nature. “
