Thanks to Neomi Hayes for sending in this piece of good news which shows that we can bring about change, especially working through groups that promote justice issues.
From the NRDC: Natural Resources Defense Council, working to protect wildlife and wild places and to ensure a healthy environment for all life on earth.
"Great news: Royal Dutch Shell has announced it is postponing its plan to drill off the coast of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge this summer.
This is a huge victory for Alaska’s embattled polar bears and other Arctic wildlife that are vulnerable to devastating losses if a blowout were to occur in the frigid Beaufort Sea.
It is a victory that you made possible through your donations, your online activism and your absolute commitment to stopping Shell in its tracks."
