The article discusses safety issues brought about by plans of Greenpeace activists to protest oil and gas exploration in the Arctic and shadow Royal Dutch Shell's drilling ships. Environmentalists believe that said action can inadvertently harm marine mammals and pollute the environs they want to protect. It notes that any plans to conduct lawful demonstrations must be done outside the safety zone and the Coast Guard can use criminal sanctions to enforce the safety zone.
