Greenpeace Activists Scale London's Shard to Protest Arctic Drilling


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".
