Gulf residents opposed to drilling are calling on President Obama not to open additional leases in the next Five Year Plan for the Gulf of Mexico.
Despite President Obama's historic climate action plan, he recently gave Shell the final approval to drill in the Arctic and is now defending his approval.
Shell Oil has decided to rebrand itself as something other than an oil company for its U.S.-based unit. But this doesn't change their aggressive stance to drill for offshore oil in the Arctic and deep offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.
"Kayaktivists" are protesting against Shell oil drilling in the Arctic by preventing the rig from leaving the Port of Seattle. While dozens were arrested, activists vow to continue protesting against Shell.
