Eco Warriors or terrorists, make up your own mind. One thing is certain Greenpeace are concerned with all things environmental, isn't it about time we all were?
"Greenpeace exists because this fragile earth deserves a voice. It needs solutions. It needs change. It needs action.
We are an independent non-profit global campaigning organisation that uses non-violent, creative confrontation to expose global environmental problems and their causes. We research solutions and alternatives to help provide a path for a green and peaceful future.
We are campaigning to:
- Protect the worlds ancient forests from destructive industrial logging.
- To protect the worlds oceans from wasteful and destructive fishing practices.
- Phase out fossil fuels and promote the renewable energy alternatives like wind power.
Climate change Already 150,000 people a year die as a result of climate change and the problem is getting worse. The solution to climate change exists today. By reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and adopting renewable energy alternatives like wind power, we can reverse the worst effects of climate change. Greenpeace is working against some of the most powerful governments and companies who are blocking action to ensure they take the necessary steps to protect our climate.
Preserving ancient forests
Throughout the world ancient forests are in crisis. 80% of the worlds ancient forests have already been destroyed or degraded. Industrial and often illegal logging is still destroying an area of ancient forest the size of a football pitch every two seconds. Many of the plants and animals that live in these forests face extinction. And many of the peoples and cultures who depend on these forests for their way of life are also under threat.
Protecting the worlds oceans
Our oceans and the life they sustain are under threat from industrial fishing practices. Almost a quarter of all creatures caught in fisheries worldwide are thrown back either dead or dying, bottom trawling is destroying ocean seabeds and wiping out entire ecosystems, pair trawling is killing dolphins in their thousands and up to 78% of the worlds fisheries are either fully exploited, over exploited or significantly depleted.
Our independence is crucial to our work so we will never accept money from companies or political organisations. That’s why we need the support of individuals to continue our work protecting and preserving the worlds environment".

http://www.greenpeace.org.uk affiliate program was with DGM PRO, but DGM UK have now gone into Administration. It's up to you to visit Greenpeace.org.uk and see how they're bravely pursuing the oil industry at sea! It'll be a lot better when the world switches over to Alcohol fuel (see alternative fuel). Anyone can brew and distill their own alcohol and run cars off it, or at least they could if the governments hadn't made it inexplicably illegal.
