Shell is to stop drilling for oil off the coast of Alaskan coast. A spokesman of the company said that the trace of oil found wasn’t enough to justify further exploration. If the project was stopped because of other reasons, such as the high-profile campaign organized by Greenpeace, the Saudi Arabia’s decision of no longer keep oil price high, or because of the tweet posted by Mrs Hillary Clinton, in which she criticizes the company’ s project, is of secondary importance. I am glad to know that the earth will be spared from more CO2 emission.
I agree with what Vaclav Havel, Czech Republic poet, play writer and activist, said. Words can still hit hard.
