A Very Happy Easter from Greenpeace

Standard Page - 2013-03-28
Easter is all about rebirth, but as this festival approaches our planet is facing quite the opposite. Many species in the North Pole, such as polar bears and walruses, are facing the threat of extinction because of the melting of sea ice from climate change and oil drilling in the Arctic. Would you like to get your voice heard and help us save the Arctic? Would you like to ask your friends to learn more about protecting the Arctic?

We can Save the Arctic
Easter is all about rebirth, but as this festival approaches our planet is facing quite the opposite. Many species in the North Pole, such as polar bears and walruses, are facing the threat of extinction because of the melting of sea ice from climate change and oil drilling in the Arctic.
But we can save the Arctic and bring the polar back to life. We have the chance and we have the strength.
We collected the signatures of more than 2.8 million people worldwide, and then just a few weeks ago oil giant Shell felt the pressure and announced that it was shelving plans to drill for oil in the Alaskan Arctic.
Because of our campaigns and the voice of people like you we have stopped Shell from drilling for oil in the Arctic for two years running now.
But we can’t relax yet! There are still many other oil companies covetously eyeing the Arctic. And we can’t rule that Shell won’t make a comeback.
Would you like to get your voice heard and help us save the Arctic? Would you like to ask your friends to learn more about protecting the Arctic?

We have the cure for the Beijing cough
"Beijing cough" is the term invented by foreigners living in Beijing to describe a bout of persistent dry cough or throat tickle because of Beijing's poor air quality. China’s urban air pollution is a serious and health-threatening problem. But we have the solutions – they're simple and straight forward.
