Greenpeace Found Guilty of Environmental Crime

From NBC:  "The environmental protection group Greenpeace is in hot water in Alaska for violating environmental protection laws.  A jury yesterday found it guilty of criminal negligence for an incident last summer when the group's ship entered Alaskan waters for an anti-logging protest without filing the required paperwork. The Greenpeace ship was carrying 70-thousand gallons of fuel, and Alaska law requires such vessels to file an oil-spill response plan.  Greenpeace could be fined up to 200-thousand dollars. The ship's captain could also be fined and sent to jail."  Story . . .  [Mark Godsey]
