Arctic Drilling

Finding new source of energy to fuel the demand for energy is what everyone is working on.
And we have reached the Arctic but a report, by Greenpeace and WWF, assesses the risks of an oil spill in Russia’s Arctic, where Gazprom is about to begin drilling.The report says that Drilling for oil in the Russian Arctic could have disastrous consequences because of the lack of technology and infrastructure to deal with a possible spill.
A Big worry not just for environmentalists but many others.
