World renowned ecology organization, Greenpeace, joined a consortium of organizations to bring to the public’s attention the plans that Shell had to exploit the arctic region in their eternal search for oil reserves. The Alaskan area that was the focus is the center of the Arctic ecosystem and drilling for oil in this area would have created an unbalance for the area as well as the communities that have learned to live within the natural order. Shell might be considered one of the better oil companies, but they do have a lengthy list of near-disasters and mishaps associated with their name. No matter what the marketing spin in commercials and television ads, Shell remains an oil company and they finally succumbed to public pressure to abandon their arctic drilling project.
