Barack Obama
President of the United States

Shell has shown that it lacks the competence to drill safely in the Arctic. After a disastrous series of accidents in 2012-2013, the company was forced to abandon its drilling plans. In 2014, it had 204 spills in Nigeria alone. Given their atrocious environmental and human rights record in Nigeria, I hope you would show some foresight in this decision.

Signed,

How this will help

The president's legacy is on the line — an unsolvable oil spill in the Arctic would forever tarnish his environmental credibility. Remind him of the stakes.
