The environmental group Greenpeace is ramping up efforts to oppose oil drilling in the Arctic. The Russian state-owned energy giant Gazprom is set to become the first company to produce Arctic oil through drilling operations in the Pechora Sea. On Tuesday, Greenpeace warned an oil spill there would cause irreparable damage, threatening some 50,000 square-miles. Greenpeace executive director Kumi Naidoo said the group plans to continue to challenge drilling platforms in the Arctic.
