So, Shell is starting its ad campaign promoting its upcoming destruction of the arctic in search for more oil. Because they’re idiots, they decided to open their server to an ad contest to see who could come up with the best ad. Shell underestimated the internet, so here’s my six favorite Shell Ad Campaign Trolls.

Mettre en œuvre une réelle politique d’efficacité énergétique s’impose d’autant plus que le nucléaire n’a jamais permis de réduire notre facture pétrolière ni nos importations d’électricité de pointe depuis l’Allemagne, très coûteuses et polluantes. Son coût est d’ailleurs appelé à augmenter du simple fait de l’indispensable renforcement de la sûreté des centrales. Jouer sur l’offre seule est donc voué à l’échec.

Les connections entre les « indignés » et les militants écolos sont nombreuses, explique Ariel Zevon, une activiste de la Freedom Plaza venue tenir la lettre « R » de Earth : « Stopper cet oléoduc, c’est stopper des décisions qui ne sont mues que par l’argent, dire non au pouvoir de la corruption. Les pancartes ici ne devraient d’ailleurs pas appeler à stopper ce seul oléoduc, mais les oléoducs, au pluriel. Si Obama bloquait la construction de Keystone ce serait un exemple puissant ».

Of that $2.1 million dollars, more than $860,000 was given to super-committee members in the 2010 election cycle alone. As the chart below shows, that money went primarily to the six Republicans on the committee, who again, have all repeatedly voted against eliminating handouts to big oil companies.

A year ago, a massive oil spill began in the Gulf. The entire country was glued to the news until the well was capped, and then we forgot about it. 

As the year anniversary was fast approaching I became curious, just how much oil was that exactly? Where would it have gone? What I found was shocking. 

So in an effort to further our discussion on oil dependency I created this short animation. I’ve spent all of my free time in the last month putting this together to help illustrate just how dependent we truly are on oil.

Almost 200 dead bottlenose dolphin bodies have been found since mid-January through this week along shorelines of Gulf coast states, including Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, Reuters notes. About half of the carcasses are newborns or stillborn infants.
That number is around 14 times the average numbers recorded during the same time frame between 2002 and 2007 and has coincidentally occurred during the first calving season since the BP Deepwater Horizon debacle last year in the Gulf.

‘In Transition’ is the first detailed film about the Transition movement filmed by those that know it best, those who are making it happen on the ground. The Transition movement is about communities around the world responding to peak oil and climate change with creativity, imagination and humour, and setting about rebuilding their local economies and communities. It is positive, solutions focused, viral and fun.

Michaels’ admission that he receives around 40 percent - his guess - of his funding from Big Oil is important, because he is quoted widely in the media for his skepticism about manmade climate change. As the ExxonSecrets profile of Pat Michaels sums up well, he is “possibly the most prolific and widely-quoted climate change skeptic scientist.”

AP Photographer Charlie Riedel just filed the following images of seabirds caught in the oil slick on a beach on Louisiana’s East Grand Terre Island.

In a sane world, a company guilty of gross negligence that resulted in the deaths of 11 workers would be under criminal investigation, and not be parading around the coast, telling the media where they can go and who they can talk to, while forbidding their clean-up crews from wearing protective gear.

En juin 1979, suite à un problème technique, une source de pétrole se répand dans le Golfe du Mexique et se dirige vers la Floride. Parallèlement, un pipeline se met à fuir en Alaska. L’équivalent de milliers de barils se répand sous l’eau et dans la nature… et ce pendant pas moins de NEUF mois. Même séquence d’événements, mêmes techniques utilisées pour tenter de colmater les fuites (qui n’avaient pas marché en 1979), même mise en danger des écosystèmes locaux. Aujourd’hui l’opération “top hat” tente de boucher la fuite. A l’époque, c’était l’opération “Sombrero”. Funny, isn’t it?
