This is HUGE. India’s Supreme Court has ruled that all coal mining licences awarded from 1993 to 2010 are ILLEGAL. That means over 200 licences could now be cancelled! Let’s make sure the licence to mine Mahan forest, central India, is one of them — sign our petition » @ Greenpeace UK

You’d think the days of massive clear-cutting of old growth forests would be over, but the Forest Service can’t seem to get out of that outdated mentality.

Why is Big Oil so oppose to strong oil-by-rail regulations? Because it would cost the industry money. Our lives are worth more than a tank car of oil. ‪#‎StopOilTrains‬. Tell our leaders to protect us, not Big Oil’s bottom line @ Forest Ethics

TROUBLE FOR WHALES: During recent Navy training exercises near Hawai`i, three whales were reportedly in distress; two of them later washed ashore and died.

Right now, Greenpeace is fighting for whales to have a permanent safe haven in the South Atlantic where they can eat, migrate, and birth their young in peace.  Will you join us? Make a gift today for whales and our planet @ Greenpeace US
