Well I am curious to see how it will be handled. Their was an enourmous outcry over the charges and detentions of those with the Russian incident which happened PREVIOUSLY to the one that is happening right now in the pacific with a drilling rig bound for Seattle. Numerous world-figures demanded the release of the criminals which were warned beforehand by the authorities to vacate the area, which they ignored.
As for this instance I have been earnestly looking for more updates but am mostly finding pro-greenpeace social media garbage which celebrates the idea of trespassing. I hope whatever measures are taken will be severe.
Does anyone REALLY know why arctic drilling is opposed? Is it just because the increased risk of spillage? There seems to be the idea amongst activists like this that drilling north of 66 degrees latitude is so much more evil than drilling near the equator. Is it the emissions from the actual drilling and ship activity that they are concerned about? Or does vibrating the earth as the drilling is underway somehow heat up the temperature? I know it is all under the name of "climate change" which I don't deny may be a serious environmental problem it's just...it is hard to find a consistent thread in their argument against arctic drilling---usually just given as "it causes climate change".
Nevermind that the ships use petroleum products, these people use social media on electronic devices whose production and transportation requires petroleum... nevermind the the gear they used to illegaly scale the rig was produced on machines that require lubrication and then transportred...nevermind...it goes on and on... sorry for the rant. I am just so tired of these people
