Why is Greenpeace talking about Lego?
by Tyler Sanville
Shell is usingLegoto build a happy, carefree image, but behind the scenes it is mobilizing giant oil rigs to drill in the Arctic -- putting the lives of polar bears, beluga whales, and more at risk of deadly oil spills. Legois loved by children everywhere. Shamefully, Shell, with plans to drill in the Arctic this year, is using Legos goodwill by partnering up with the beloved toy company. Not only is the Arctic critical to regulating global climate. this remote habitat is home to unique and beautiful animals like polar bears, narwhals, and beluga whales. Just one misstep by Shell, and they had many with their 2013 drilling attempt, could doom all of them to a disastrous oil spill. Legowouldnt put an oil spill in its Arctic Play Set -- so why should it give Shell its support?
