Oh, great another "trans-national" maritime security threat acts up: "Greenpeace assails oil rig in Russian Arctic"

BBC News - Greenpeace assails oil rig in Russian Arctic
Greenpeace activists have launched an attempt to board a Russian oil platform and prevent it drilling in the Arctic.

The group released pictures of two activists scaling the side of the giant Prirazlomnaya platform, and of security forces boarding one of its boats.

The group said two of its activists were arrested and were being held on a Russian coastguard ship.

It said the coastguard vessel had fired 11 shots across the main Greenpeace ship.
I wonder if Greenpeace used solar powered electric motors or other "renewable source" fuels on its organic boats and ships to get to the site of its "action."
