Tell Chubb: Stop insuring destructive Arctic oil drilling
Dear Chubb Limited CEO Evan G. Greenberg,
Some of the last pristine wild places in America are located in the frigid Arctic of Alaska -- but these wilds and the caribou, polar bears and wolves that rely on them are threatened by the prospect of Arctic oil drilling.
Some of the most crucial caribou calving grounds in Alaska are in the crosshairs of the oil industry. The construction and disruption that accompany oil drilling near birthing grounds risk alienating caribou herds from these crucial sites. That's bad for the caribou, the Arctic habitats they shape, and the health and safety of the entire planet.
We can't afford any new oil or gas drilling. For that reason, we the undersigned urge you to commit Chubb Limited to refusing to underwrite new fossil fuel projects in the Arctic Refuge.
