The members of Greenpeace, the Alaska Wilderness League and other environmental groups wanted to deliver a petition to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson but were told to email the petition instead. Shell Oil has asked the EPA for revisions to its air permit to allow for higher levels of pollution from the company's Arctic Ocean drilling fleet. (Photo by T.J. Kirkpatrick/Getty Images)
