Following the biggest offshore oil spill earlier this year, oil moguls have restarted pushing for their slot in the Arctic Ocean drilling raffle. Pew Trust recently released a report expressing their concern with the risks that the Arctic is facing in case of a similar unfortunate event as the one in the Gulf of Mexico.

Already an unstable ecological system and with far less possibilities to reabilitate a possible spill, it looks rather like a risk not taking. Perhaps the lobbying battle should be fought on the research field for clean energy, in an attempt to decrease the ever growing crave for oil. I guess it’s up for the geoengineering experts to stand as pawns on this chess table.
