Seismic Testing in Baffin Bay
« on: February 06, 2015, 05:49:19 PM »
A decision by Canada's National Energy Board to allow potentially highly disruptive seismic testing for oil in the Canadian Arctic is being challenged by the local community. CBC have a short piece about it:

and the Arctic Journal:

The local community have asked Greenpeace to support them and they have set up a petition which can be signed here:
