Landgrabbing in Cameroon: the Story of Herakles Farms
Take Action: https://secure3.convio.net/gpeace/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=1287&s_src=youtube An American company, Herakles Farms, plans to illegally chop down an area of rainforest in Cameroon, that's ten times the size of Manhattan, to make palm oil.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - "Black Captain" (Revised for Peter Willcox)
To Sign the Petition: http://www.greenpeace.org/international/en/campaigns/climate-change/arctic-impacts/Peace-Dove/Arctic-30/ Bonnie "Prince" Billy sings "Black Captain (For Peter Willcox)." Willcox, the Greenpeace Arctic 30 ship captain currently charged with piracy and "hooliganism" for his role in a peaceful protest again an oil rig in the Russian Arctic, was granted bail last week after two months in "pre-trial detention" in Murmansk and St. Petersburg, Russia. He still has not been allowed to leave Russia to see his wife and two daughters, and there is no date set for his trial. Bonnie "Prince" Billy is the stage name of Will Oldham, "one of the country's most celebrated singer-songwriters." (http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2009/01/05/090105fa_fact_sanneh) Peter Willcox grew up on the water in South Norwalk, Connecticut. He started sailing for the environment in 1973 on the Clearwater, the boat started by folksinger Pete Seeger. Willcox has been involved in Greenpeace for over 30 years, and he has skippered Greenpeace ships since 1981. He was the captain on the first Rainbow Warrior that was bombed in New Zealand by the French secret service in 1985. Oldham revised "Black Captain" from the original. This version ends: "When he'd disappeared into hazard I'd feared I was now meant to sail on my own There is a place on the open sea You will say it is like any other It has an air of importance to me As it waits for the hull of my brother It had been my thought that the power he got Couldn't be there without what I gave him And now I find a good part of my mind Will be worthless unless I help save him He ain't here ain't here I can't handle this lack And now I Want my captain back"

Submarine research in the world's largest underwater canyons
Greenpeace is researching the world's largest underwater canyons at the bottom of the Bering Sea using a Waitt Institute submarine. The Pribiloff and Zhemchug canyons are known as the "Grand Canyons of the Sea," yet little is known about the diversity and distribution of life on the sea floor. Today, overfishing and destructive fishing methods like trawling are damaging these canyons and threatening the food supply for marine mammals, birds and Native communities who depend on the marine ecosystem.

Duke Energy's giant coal ash spill in Eden, NC
Sign the petition: https://secure3.convio.net/gpeace/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=1565 On Sunday, a Duke Energy-owned pipe underneath an unlined coal ash dump in Eden, North Carolina shattered, releasing up to 82,000 tons of highly toxic coal ash into the Dan River, a source of drinking water, fishing and recreation. Duke Energy has repeatedly claimed its coal ash dump sites are safe, but they were wrong. Let's prevent this disaster from ever happening again.

Get the Coal Energy Facts: Help Us Stop Coal Exports
http://stopcoalexports.org There's a new front line in the battle to prevent catastrophic climate change. Arrested Development star Alia Shawkat (aka Maeby) explains the truth about the coal industry's plans to export American coal. Multi-billion dollar coal companies like Arch, Ambre, and Peabody want to ship the coal buried under the United States to Asia, releasing disastrous amounts of carbon pollution, just to line their own pockets. This expansion in US coal exports could release more carbon pollution than any other new fossil fuel project in the United States. Coal exports out of the Pacific Northwest could pose a bigger climate threat than the Keystone XL pipeline. Coal companies are scheming to export over 150 million tons of coal through the region. If we're serious about halting the worst impacts of climate change, we must do something to stop Arch, Ambre, and Peabody's plans, and keep this coal in the ground. The good news is that there is a growing movement to stop coal exports. In the past few months alone, over 10,000 people have turned out to public hearings in the Pacific Northwest to say no to new coal export terminals. Globally, renewable energy can power our homes, cars, and businesses, and make these massive extraction projects irrelevant. That's why Greenpeace is calling on elected officials to put people over profits and put the brakes on coal export expansion. The Obama Administration can declare a moratorium on new coal leasing in the Powder River Basin. Share this video so that politicians and regulators at all levels of government consider that green-lighting any new coal export-related infrastructure would just line coal companies' pockets at the taxpayer's expense.

5. Abuse at Sea: Tuna Fisherman Testimonials
These testimonials are excerpts from interviews Greenpeace conducted with fishermen who work on tuna boats in the Pacific. The workers on tuna boats are often subject to bullying and violence, speaking up can put them in danger, and at worst can put their lives at risk. The majority of tuna fishermen Greenpeace has spoken to in ports across Asia and the Pacific tell stories of when they were the victims of labor or human rights abuse. Many fishermen would not speak on camera for fear of their safety. When needed faces have been masked to protect identities.

"Its possible that the oil from the BP spill may have been so effectively submerged and 'miniaturized' that resident bottom organisms, such as sponges, can best detect the oil or dispersants at the molecular level", said Dr. Jose Lopez.

September 8, 2010 Today, an investigative team from the Greenpeace ship the Arctic Sunrise found oil from the BP Deepwater Horizon spill on the shores of Horn Island, just off the coast of Mississippi. Tarballs at various stages of weathering and various sizes were found on both the leeward and windward sides of the islands. On one beach, a protected turtle nest had been marked just a few feet away from tarballs. "...Vast amounts of the oil released into the Gulf will never reach the coast and will never be cleaned up. Instead, mixed, dissolved and dispersed into the water this oil it causing as yet unquantified and potentially highly significant effects on the Gulf's aquatic ecosystem," said Adam Walters, Science Coordinator.

Northern Cheyenne Take a Step Towards Solar Energy Independence
On July 4, 2016, Northern Cheyenne tribal member Elsie Weaslebear commissioned her net metered solar system in Lame Deer, Montana. It is the first net metered solar installation in a rural Montana energy co-op. Just months ago, Arch Coal was proposing one of the largest coal mines in the nation right next to the Northern Cheyenne Nation and Elsie's home. The Otter Creek Coal Mine and adjoining Tongue River Railroad would have destroyed ranches where Montanans live and work. It was proposed on Northern Cheyenne ancestral homelands just miles from the reservation. After years of community activism, the Otter Creek Coal Mine and Tongue River Railroad proposals were defeated. Now, the Northern Cheyenne are looking towards solar energy as a way to power their homes. #keepitintheground

ECOSYSTEM IN CRISIS is the award-winning short documentary of Greenpeace's 2007 scientific expedition to research the underwater canyons of the Bering Sea in Alaska. Using deep water submersibles to dive into the canyons, Greenpeace recorded never-before-seen, high-definition footage of the vibrant ecosystem that lives just underneath the waves. Along their journey, Greenpeace interviewed indigenous populations that have subsisted off the resources of the Bering Sea for thousands of years, as they fight against industrial fishing operations that threaten their cultural heritage. Directed by Brent Balalas, produced by Marcos Dávalos, and edited by Basia Winograd, ECOSYSTEM IN CRISIS won Best People and the Sea Film at the BLUE Ocean Film Festival in 2010 and Best Short at the Hamptons Wildlife Conservation Film Festival in 2011. The film has also screened at the 2011 National Wildlife Film Festival in Washington, D.C. and at the 2012 Far Northern Conservation Film Festival in Alaska. In the fall of 2012, the film will screen at the Borneo Eco Film Festival in Borneo, Malaysia. For more about Greenpeace's campaign to protect the Bering Sea visit beringseacanyons.org.
