That Shell thing is a hoax, it was created as campaigning tool (I think by Greenpeace). There are associated hoax twitter and facebook accounts as well.

Ah-ha! Well done for telling them where to go with their cold-call begging then!

I don't think that's quite how I feel about it. On the one hand, I dislike the poor ethics of tricking people with a site like that, and I am not sure it gets the message over in the best way.

On the other hand, if they had just set up a 'save the arctic' campaign carefully explaining why they feel Shell drilling for oil in the arctic is a bad idea, probably very few people would ever see it.

I am inclined to think they probably have a good point, even if I'm not enthused about the way they have made it. :-/ I wish issues discussed without hysteria would get more attention.
