Activists in inflatables display a banner reading in English: "You Can Save The Arctic" and in German:" Stoopt Shell. Schuetzt die Arktis". Shell is positioning itself to be at the head of an oil-rush into the Arctic, in expectation that climate change will continue to drive up the average Arctic summer ice melt, and so make drilling in the region easier. Oil spills are virtually impossible to clean up in Arctic conditions. This interception is part of a series of actions held to prevent the ship from joining Shell’s fleet of vessels in Alaska.
