Life in the oceans comes in an incredible array of shapes and
sizes - from microscopic plankton to the largest of the great whales.
Each of these species are part of complex marine ecosystems. We
have much to learn about how these ecosystems work and how our
activities impact on them. The Greenpeace oceans campaign
currently focuses on three major threats to the world's oceans:
overfishing, pirate fishing, whaling and intensive shrimp aquaculture.
For more than a century, people have relied on fossil fuels such
as oil, coal and gas for their energy needs. Now, worldwide, people
and the environment are experiencing the consequences. Global warming,
caused by burning fossil fuels, is the worst environmental problem
we face today.
Greenpeace is campaigning globally on a variety of fronts to stop
climate change - from the campaign to pressure the US Corporate
100 and George W Bush to work with the rest of the world to halt
climate change, to researching and promoting clean energy solutions.
Greenpeace is also working with The Body Shop to bring renewable
energy to 2 billion people in developing countries who have no
access to electricity.
