This morning we started taking direct action against the world's most controversial oil rig: Cairn Energy's Arctic driller, the 53,000 tonne Leiv Eiriksson, which was hours away from its drill site in Iceberg Alley off Greenland.
Our climbers rigged up the legendary yellow survival pod and are now camping a few metres from the giant drill bit, preventing the rig from starting to drill.
They've got enough food and water to stay in the pod for ten days so keep watching our live updates. What they could always use more of is support - so please add your comments below or tweet on the hashtag #SaveTheArctic. We'll make sure they see your messages.
