So much is exciting and vitally important work is happening right now to escalate Greenpeace's campaigns to save our climate and defend our oceans. As you will see in these pages, our campaigns and our expeditions are bigger, bolder, and more ambitious than ever, thanks to your generous support.
What happens to forests happens to all of us, and Greenpeace is bringing all of our best strategies, strengths, and skills to the fight to stop Indonesia’s rainforests from being further destroyed by the expanding palm oil industry. Also, while the Trump Administration and its regressive policies require our most determined resistance, Greenpeace is simultaneously pushing for real climate leadership in California to create the progress we need to address global warming.
The science is clear—continuing to go forward with existing fossil fuel development will push the planet beyond the 1-2° temperature rise we cannot exceed and still avoid catastrophe.
That’s why Greenpeace is escalating our campaign to stop fossil fuel expansion. The pace and extent of global activism against fossil fuel pipelines is incredible and showing no signs of letting up.
Whether you’re gazing out over a never-ending sea, billowing plains, or treacherous mountain terrain, it’s impossible not to feel small as the vastness of the planet envelops you. But we always have to remember the power that we have together, and that’s exactly what this issue of the Compass reminds us.
Come with us as we explore the depths of the Weddell Sea, and make the case stronger for creating an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary with new science.
You'll find common threads you might not expect in this issue, like between the Arctic Sunrise’s exciting voyage to one of the most remote areas on Earth and what’s happening in Indonesia’s irreplaceable rainforests.
The latest news on dirty tar sands pipelines, the ocean plastic pollution crisis, and what’s going on with the world’s top maker of smartphones share recurring themes as well. All of these things are crucial to saving our climate and holding corporations accountable.
The growing dangers of the Trump administration that threaten world peace, racial justice, our environment and health, are spurring communities to work together. Activists are turning outrage into action. Everyday people are showing up en masse, ready to step up and fight for a different future.
In the face of an administration that won’t listen to our communities, our scientists, our environmental stewards, or even the truth, it is clear that we need to RESIST as urgently as ever to protect people and the planet. From the beginning, Greenpeace activists have put their bodies on the line in bold acts of defiance and peaceful protest. And this summer, we opened the doors wide to share our decades of experience.
Greenpeace relies completely on charitable contributions from our supporters.
Greenpeace is the world's leading independent, environmental campaigning organization. We do not take money from governments or corporations.Every ship in our fleet, every expedition we lead and every journey we take is powered by the support of private foundations and people like you.
