Greenpeace activists block the main entrance to Shell's head office in Colombes, Paris, and display banners reading 'Stop Shell' in response to Shell's planned oil drilling operations in the Arctic. Shell is due to begin drilling at two offshore sites in the Alaskan Arctic in the coming weeks, amid fears that an Arctic oil rush will be sparked and the push to carve up the region will accelerate.07/19/2012
