We had a big win last week. Last Friday, October 16, the Department of the Interior cancelled Shell Oil’s offshore lease in the Arctic! But we need your help this week. Shell is expanding into Puget Sound in Washington State. Each week, Shell plans to have 6, one-mile-long trains carry oil through the Pacific Northwest.

Please, send in your comments now.

Shell wants more oil for the refinery located near the Salish Sea in Puget Sound. If Shell’s plan is approved, the company will increase the risk of oil spills, leaks, and explosions not just in Puget Sound — but all along the tracks from the Midwest to the Pacific Northwest.

Shell attempted to prevent its plan from receiving public scrutiny. But climate justice fighters won a full environmental review of this dangerous project. You can join in on the review by submitting your comments by clicking the link here.
