They have this lovely little website where have this nice ‘just for kids!!’ section.
Right now, the polar ice caps of our planet are melting.
That’sbad—but it’s also good!
That’s right! It’s bad because our planet needs ice at the poles. But it’s good because when the polar ice melts, we at Shell can go up there to get more oil, which can do a whole lot of things. Thanks to oil:
- Mommy and Daddy can drive to the store to buy you new toys.
- Companies like Mattel™ can build new toys.
- Engineers can drive to work to design new, better toys that are even more fun to play with.
- When you’re done with your toys, trucks can take them away to dispose of.
Oil can even help us fix some of the problems that melting ice causes.
So it’s fine to be sad about our melting polar ice caps, and about how sad that makes the planet—but remember to be glad as well, because of all that the oil we’re finding there is letting you do, now and far into the future!
Won’t you help Shell get Arctic oil? Just make sure those icebergs stay melted, and melt any new ones that threaten to cause big problems.
