This week, Seattle activists used their kayaks to stop Shell from docking at the port and then continuing on to the Arctic. We’ll also discuss the latest oil spill in Santa Barbara, the possibilities of a spill in the Arctic and the environmental impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. We’ll be joined by Huffington Post’s Kate Sheppard and investigative journalist Antonia Juhasz.
