Bravo Florian Schulz!

Kudos to my friend, Fellow iLCP photographer, Florian Schulz, for the great show about the Arctic that he currently has up at The G2 Gallery on Abbott Kinney Blvd. in Venice, CA.

Kudos also to Patagonia and Earthjustice for supporting his work and circulating this exhibit.

It is important that we understand the Arctic more completely before we do something irreversible to the habitat such as Big Oil has just done to the Gulf states. In fact, plans for exploratory oil drilling -- ala the Deepwater Horizon rig -- continue to move forward, and could begin as early as July in the Arctic Ocean's Beaufort and Chukchi seas.

The window for public comment on where we will drill for new oil fields in the future is during the next three weeks.

Let YOUR congressmen and Senators know you think it is a bad idea to risk the Arctic, one of the richest ecosystems on the planet, until the industrial exploiters can PROVE they can respond.

Also, Please Call a "Time Out" on Arctic Oil and Gas Activities via Earthjustice.
