    I’m glad someone is standing up to Shell. Arctic drilling is a disaster waiting to happen–the most clear example of fossil fuels that need to be left in the ground. Pity that the coast guard prevented them from being effective, but at least this will raise awareness and help raise political pressure to stop this awful experiment.
