I saw this on a news video and after just doing a post
about one Polar Bear I wanted to share this horrible news.
I am not against drilling as long as the oil stays here which I am sure
it won't.. The US govenment is in the market for making money and I am sure
they can make more by EXPORTING.
7 Oil companies.. Shell is one and Conoco is another for 2.5 Billion dollars.
The Video can be seen here ..

Thanks for reading
The Chuckshi Sea off Alaska's north coast is estimated to be sitting on 15 billion barrels of crude oil reserves.
Environmentalists say the federal government has delayed a decision on whether to add the bears to its list of endangered animal species so as not to disrupt its sale of the oil and gas exploration rights to the area.
Activists point out that the agency in charge of the drilling rights is in the same government department as the agency responsible for listing endangered species. The government has insisted that oil exploration poses no threat to the animals.
According to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), the lease sale would make the polar bears' habitat "vulnerable to big business interests and jeopardise the government's ability to protect it".
