    Work suspended at Leiv Eiriksson rig off Greenland after protesters demand to know how owner Cairn Energy would cope with leak on scale of Deepwater Horizon
    So the price of food stays to high for the overwhelming majority of the worlds population and a poor country is deprived of a source of income. Well done kids......

    Did they extort him, damages his rig or assaulting the worker into shutting down the oil rig or did they bring up a point about a worst case scenario and he shut it down?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Technically this makes Greenpeacers pirates and on the high seas whoever is in charge of that rig is the law, pirates should be dealt with accordingly with lethal force. Who the F do these people think they are and why do they think they are above international law.

    I see these people as being environmentally ill. They are brainwashed to the point they go out and do the bidding of an organization that takes in millions of dollars and the relies volunteers to the work they don't need to as they sit in offices in plush chairs and do pretty much nothing all the while making over $100,000 a year for doing nothing. I would fight anything by doing nothing for that kind of money

    Perhaps we should start raiding these offices in orange suits.

    They are Liberals. Liberals are all about the law...until it doesn't work in their favor.

    If the workers at the rig struck would you say the same thing?

    You're not jumping to conclusions, sir! YOU SHOULD BE JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS!

    There doesn't seem to be any reports of damage to the rig. This is all just theatrics. Reckless theatrics, but theatrics nonetheless.

    Greenpeace skanks are the same as pirates. If oil rigs are attacked they need to shoot them till they all sink.

    Reading is fundamental:

    Edinburgh-based Cairn Energy said drilling was suspended at its Leiv Eiriksson rig off the coast of Greenland after 18 Greenpeace protesters breached a restricted area. The activists launched from the Greenpeace ship Esperanza in five inflatable speedboats from outside a 500m exclusion zone set up by Danish authorities.

    They were forced to stop for safety reasons.

    In a statement, the company said: "Cairn confirms that members of Greenpeace have boarded the semi-submersible drilling vessel, the Leiv Eiriksson, owned by Ocean Rig. The protesters have breached the safety exclusion zone and entered a restricted area on the rig. In accordance with the strict health and safety practices employed in this drilling programme and in order to ensure safe operating conditions, drilling has been suspended.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
