Whether to open the Chukchi Sea to exploratory oil drilling now rests in the hands Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne. He plans on opening 20 million acres of the Chukchi Sea for leasing on February 6, 2008. The Chukchi and Beaufort seas are the home of almost one-fifth of the global polar bear population. Of course the polar bear is not the only creature at stake, but it has become the iconic image of the global warming endangered arctic. I urge you to take action on three fronts - Kempthorne, Bush, and your Representative. Each of these links takes you to the appropriate email response form.



Contact Dirk Kempthorne (World Wildlife Fund)

Contact President Bush (Defenders of Wildlife)

Contact Your Congressperson (National Resource Defense Council)
