Climate and Energy

Climate change and the threats of nuclear energy are real. That is why Greenpeace works to bring about a clean and just energy future. Tar sands and nuclear development plague the ecosystems and communities they occupy with safety and health risks. The Energy [R]evolution is a set of ready-to-implement solutions that lead away from the dangers of climate chaos and nuclear meltdown. It is a vision of the clean and just energy future for everyone on the planet.

Tar Sands

Greenpeace calls on oil companies and the Canadian government to stop the tar sands. We call for an end to industrialization in vast areas of Indigenous territories, forests and wetlands in northern Alberta.



Greenpeace fights nuclear power because it poses a serious threat to the environment and humanity. The expansion of nuclear power must be halted and nuclear plants shut down so that we can develop a clean energy future. That's why we are working to stop Darlington in Ontario and protect electricity consumers from a new round of nuclear debt.

Energy [R]evolution

Greenpeace pressures the Canadian government and mobilizes citizens to demand action on climate change. We have developed a comprehensive Energy [R]evolution for Canada. The Energy [R]evolution outlines a clean energy future that challenges the current destructive energy scenario. Join Canada's Energy [R]evolution and support renewable energy to fight climate change.

Blog entry by Keith Stewart | January 20, 2012

There was, understandably, a lot of coverage of the Obama administration’s rejection of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. But very few people seem to have read the full “ Report to Congress ” filed by the U.S. State Department...

One Keystone pipeline down, one Gateway pipeline to go

Blog entry by Mike Hudema | January 18, 2012 1 comment

I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve been told by industry and government insiders that while the expansion of the tar sands may be a terrible thing, there’s simply no way to stop it. Well, we’ve found a way. President Obama...
