Together we can protect the Arctic
Help us protect the Arctic
We have lost 75% of the Arctic summer sea ice volume - and the Arctic is now warming twice as fast as the rest of the world.
What shape is the Arctic in today
How sea ice melting impacts us
It speeds up global warming:
Because of global warming, the Arctic sea ice is creating a tremendous ripple effect, here are some of the main consequences:
Arctic sea reflects sunlight, preventing some of the warming through the sun. As the ice melts, darker oceans that replace the white ice and absorb more heat from the sun, creating a vicious warming cycle.
The sea ice also limits the amount of moisture entering our atmosphere. As the ice melts, the air becomes more humid making extreme weather events more common.
According to scientists, melting Arctic ice contributes to sea level rise, threatening to submerge small island countries as well as flood large costal cities.
It creates severe weather:
It raises sea levels:
The only way to guarantee no that no oil spills in the Arctic is to keep oil in the ground. The Arctic has a greater risk of oil spills than other areas, mainly due to its topography and tricky weather conditions. On top of this, response to an inevitable oil spill would be difficult due to the remote and rugged nature of the region.
Oil companies are ready to exploit the newly uncovered oil deposits below the newly melted Arctic ice. Big companies like Exxon Mobil are racing to exploit Arctic oil resources, putting the global climate at greater risk as well as local ecosystems.

Drilling means spilling
What if they do drill?
Aside from the devastating effect an oil spill in the arctic would have on the region, the oil that is burned would contribute towards climate change at a time where we need to be doing everything we can to decrease our emissions.
