Greenpeace is pushing for an energy [r]evolution: we are calling for governments to quit dirty, dangerous fuels like coal and oil by transitioning to renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The Science

Standard Page | 2010-04-14 at 8:00

Climate scientists around the world agree with overwhelming certainty that climate change is the result of manmade activity. But if we are responsible for the cause, then we can also be responsible for the solutions to protect our climate and our...

The Greenhouse Effect

Standard Page | 2009-07-15 at 16:12

The Earth's atmosphere is made up of a blanket of gases, which trap enough heat to sustain life. However, by burning fossil fuels and cutting down forests, humans pump billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. We also add...
