Evironmentalists target Shell over Chukchi and Beaufort leases

 Environmental groups are gearing up for a public and shareholder pressure campaign aimed at getting Shell to back off from plans for oil and gas exploration in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas. The campaign will roll out by the end of this month. The Sierra Club is putting it together along with the World Wildlife Fund, the Dutch chapter of Friends of the Earth and some smaller groups in Holland and Belgium.
