We have lost 80% of the Artic sea ice


We made it!
Last week, along with five other women, I scaled Europe’s tallest skyscraper to show  our leaders and Shell that we don’t want Arctic drilling. Now we need you to take the reins and make sure the whole world knows why we need to protect the Arctic.
This feat took us 15 hours of climbing. Despite our exhaustion, the outpouring of support from tens of thousands of people all over the world kept our spirits high. When we reached the top, we waved a flag for the Arctic in direct view of Shell’s three London headquarters.
There were only six of us up there, but there are millions of us in every corner of the world who want the Arctic protected. The most effective action we can do now is to make everyone else care for the Arctic as we do, and to do that we need to make it big news. This is not a niche subject. This affects every single person on our planet.
Everyone should know that we’ve lost 80% of the Arctic sea ice in the last 30 years, the sea ice that cools our planet and provides a home to unique species like the polar bear. That should make people want to protect it — not to drill for more oil, one of the fossil fuels that caused the melting in the first place.
Shell doesn’t want us talking about their dangerous Arctic oil drilling plans. Together we can shout about them from the rooftops 😉
Thanks for everything,
Victo (and Sandra, Sabine, Liesbeth, Wiola and Ali)

  1. I did not realize it was that bad. We try to do our part and if everyone would do their part just imagine what we can accomplish. We need more people like you to educate us with facts to help us make better choices.
    Thank you…
