Six female activists from environmental group Greenpeace scaled London's Shard skyscraper on Thursday to protest oil and gas drilling in the Arctic. The six women started their ascent at 4 a.m. local time and were expected to reach the top by mid-afternoon when they planned to unfurl a "giant piece of art that will show the true beauty of the Arctic and why we're telling Shell to keep its rusty rigs away".
