Are Shell’s 'Zombie' Permits Blocking Arctic Protection?

Greenpeace Canada.

Remember last year when a global movement of millions kicked Shell out of the Alaskan Arctic? Well, guess which company is back in the spotlight again for its devious deeds: yes, it’s Shell, but this time it’s the Canadian Arctic where the oil giant is up to no good. More here.

The People of Clyde River, Nunavut Need Your Help. PLEASE SIGN!

Greenpeace Canada

People in the coastal town of Clyde River, Nunavut — one of the most remote communities in the world — are protesting dangerous oil exploration in their waters. They are taking legal action to protect Canada’s Arctic and the mammals that thrive there from seismic blasting and have just been granted leave to appeal at the Supreme Court of Canada.
p style="margin:0px 0px 0px 38px;">
A five-year oil exploration project has been approved without Inuit consent off Clyde River’s coast, which allows seismic blasting — a process of firing loud sonic explosions through the ocean to find oil — as a first step towards dangerous Arctic oil drilling.
But it’s not just the oil drilling that’s dangerous — these explosions can disrupt migration paths of marine animals like narwhals, belugas, and bowheads, sometimes causing permanent hearing loss, and in the worst case, even death.
Join this brave community in their fight to protect their home and their traditions.
President Obama and the U.S. Interior Department have cancelled Arctic drilling off Alaska's shores. Please send a letter right now to urge Justin Trudeau and the National Energy Board to do the same here in Canada.

Please go here to sign.

Floods (Story & Video)

Hi Larry,

As you read this email, vast swathes of the UK are underwater. Buckling from the strain of torrential rains, rivers have overflowed and flood defences have been breached. Hundreds of families have been forced to evacuate their homes [1].

David Cameron has pledged to help people suffering in the wake of the destruction. That’s a start. But in the aftermath of such ferocious storms, we need to make sure he joins the dots to climate change.

The fires in Indonesia have been called “a crime against humanity” – and our investigators are on the ground now gathering evidence to expose the companies responsible and hold them to account. Can you take your support to the next step and help us by donating £5 per month?
