Al Gore just said that President Obama's arctic drilling plan is "insane."
Watch the video and sign a petition here.
With Shell about to start drilling, Gore called for a ban on all oil and gas activity in the polar region, saying:
"I think the Deepwater Horizon spill was warning enough. The conditions are so hostile to human activity there. I think it’s a mistake to drill for oil in the Arctic. I think that ought to be banned."
If you agree, click here to sign this petition to Obama and the EPA:
Arctic drilling is a terrible idea. Don't do it. Negotiate a global ban on drilling in the Arctic instead.
