Shell Oil announced earlier this month that it will not resume its oil drilling efforts in the Arctic until at least 2014. While this is not a promise to drop its goal of putting oil platforms in the wild, remote Arctic, it is an admission by Shell that their plans are fraught with problems. It also gives us more time to convince the Obama administration to ban Arctic drilling, before Shell has a chance to resume operations.
