We love her commitment!!
We told you that Lucy Lawless was protesting on a drilling ship owned by Shell off the coast of New Zealand for Greenpeace earlier this week.
But now, the actress, along with five other environmental activists, have been arrested after they were perched on top a 174-foot drilling tower on the Noble Discoverer.
She is currently in custody, but police have yet to determine what her charges will be.
During the protest, she told reporters:
"I've got three kids. My sole biological reason for being on this planet is to ensure that they can flourish, and they can't do that in a filthy, degraded environment. We need to stand up while we still can."
We admire your tenacity, gurlfrand! You are most definitely a warrior princess!

Lucy Lawless is channeling her Xena days!
The actress and six other environmentalists climbed on top of a 174 foot drilling tower on a drilling ship owned by Shell off the coast of New Zealand.
The protesters hung banners from the drilling derrick reading, “Stop Shell” and "#SaveTheArctic."
Lucy stated that she did the protest for her kiddies and that it was her first active protest against drilling.
She said the following about her act for Greenpeace:
I’ve got three kids. My sole biological reason for being on this planet is to ensure that they can flourish, and they can’t do that in a filthy, degraded environment. We need to stand up while we still can
Way to break the Law, Super Mom!
The ship has ceased operations but Shell is looking for a way to go around the protestors so they can drill in the Artic.
Score one for the planet!

WooHoo!! We LOVE the Earth!!
Simulating the way leaves harness the energy of the sun, scientists have a discovered a way to use "artificial leaf technology" to possibly powers ships and planes…. and even cars!!!
According to Professor Richard Cogdell:
What you need is to be able to lock that energy up in some sort of storage fluid that’s available on demand, and that’s what fuel is. To really sustain our way of life after the oil runs out we have to be able to make, renewably and sustainably, dense portable fuels for transport, especially for aeroplanes and ships. We’re looking at photosynthesis to see whether we can learn to copy it in a more robust and efficient way. What we’ve realised in just the last couple of months is that we should be able to use electricity to power these reactions. I would be very disappointed if this wasn’t working in the real world in 30 years time.
We'd be totes disappointed too!!
Oil is soooo last century!! Time to be smart about the way we use our energy!!!

About 18 oil executives from companies including BP, Shell and Statoil were tricked into watching a 15-minute power-point presentation about environmental concerns over drilling in Greenland.
Several Greenpeace activists dressed up in suits and went to an actual seminar hosted by Greenland’s Raw Materials Directorate, at Nordatlantens Brygge in Copenhagen.
The undercover activists waited in the elevator until the businessmen arrived and then told them that the meeting had moved to a different room.

Victoria Principal fears offshore drilling oil spills just as much as most other people.
But she's really doing something about it.
She's apparently been making "extremely generous six-figure donations" to two organizations that lobby against offshore oil drilling.
