The health of our oceans is closely linked to our own survival

Louisa Casson, an ocean campaigner at Greenpeace, said: “The health of our oceans is closely linked to our own survival. Unless we act now to protect them, deep-sea mining could have devastating consequences for marine life and humankind.”

Greenpeace divers hold a banner calling for “More Marine Reserves Now” near a fish aggregating device (FAD). Greenpeace is seeking a global ban on the use of FADs and is campaigning to protect the world’s oceans through the creation of a global network of marine reserves.

5 minutes and 27 seconds. That’s how much was spent on climate during the 2016 presidential debates.

Last night’s Democratic Debate was not much of an improvement. The climate is not a “single-issue” topic — and it should be at the forefront of the conversation. bit.ly/2IukWxY

When they say, “that’s not how things work in the real world,” we say, “not yet.”

Corporations Are Killing Our Planet

Corporations are killing our planet.

Greenpeace:

I urge you to collaborate and work with Greenpeace to phase out single-use plastic packaging and invest in alternatives to ensure that plastic from your company’s products are never found in our oceans, waterways, or coasts ever again.

Greenpeace: New oil pipelines threaten water and endangered orcas

Oil pipelines are a threat to clean drinking water and our oceans.

A proposed tar sands pipeline in Canada that would create a tanker superhighway that could drive the 76 remaining endangered Southern Resident orcas to extinction.

Expansion of tar sands oil will undermine efforts to protect the global climate, and it’s not a question of if, but when, pipelines will spill, threatening access to clean water.

Energy Transfer Partners’ Dakota Access Pipeline has already spilled four times since it was built, and a major spill would threaten the drinking water of 17 million people.

But the wave of resistance is building.

Some banks are already backing away from tar sands pipelines and Energy Transfer Partners, but each of these Dirty Dozen banks are still financially involved in some of these projects.  If people around the world ask their banks to commit to NOT fund these pipelines, we can tip the balance on these toxic projects and stop these new pipelines for good.

Tell the Dirty Dozen banks not to fund pipelines that threaten our water!

Take Action!

Greenpeace: Less is More!

Eating more plant-based meals is not only good for your health, it’s vital for our planet. In fact, producing meat releases as many carbon emissions as all planes, trains, cars, and trucks combined. Our planet needs less meat and more plants — now, and you can help make it happen!
