There are no answers among the community to how the relationship between $2.4 trillion of offshore oil infrastructure will play out. “The corporation are acting without asking the community. However, the community whom are mostly shareholders will get dividends from land leased by the corporation.

Shell's proposed offshore drill site is in the path of the bowhead whale's migration route. Many Inupiat hunters are concerned about Shell's lack of spill response capabilities if licenses are granted to drill offshore in the Arctic's Beaufort and Chukchi seasGreenpeace is campaigning for a global sanctuary to be declared around the uninhabited area of the North Pole to save the Arctic from attempts by oil companies to exploit the region’s resources for short term profit.
