Environmental pressure group Greenpeace has launched a new Web site to gather support for its latest campaign, opposing oil development in the Arctic Ocean.
The Arctic Cyber Activist Web site aims to draw attention to the global impact of climate change that oil exploration activities bring.
Visitors to the site are invited to join in a ‘cyberaction’ letter writing campaign to stop BP Amoco’s proposed Northstar project, the first offshore oil project in the Arctic Ocean.
Anyone interested in becoming an ‘Arctic Activist’ can sign up to the special email list to receive regular updates on the progress of the campaign and of opportunities to get more involved.
“Global climate change requires a global response,” said Kevin Jardine, Greenpeace climate campaigner. “The Internet is an ideal tool to mobilise large numbers of people to protect the Arctic and influence an enormous company like BP Amoco.”
