Greenpeace — BREAKING! PULP AND PAPER GIANT APRIL ENDS DEFORESTATION — PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES

Today Indonesia’s second largest pulp and paper producer agreed to turn off the bulldozers and protect the forest and high carbon peatlands and begin respecting the rights of local communities. This is a major breakthrough and we commend APRIL and parent company the Royal Golden Eagle Group for taking this step.

As recently as 4 months ago, Greenpeace released new images and video exposing the dramatic destruction of natural rainforests happening at the hands of APRIL and the Royal Golden Eagle Group. This heartbreaking lose of forests was paired with the draining of high carbon peatlands which causes significant greenhouse gas emissions and an increased risk for forest fires. APRIL also has a history of significant conflict with local communities in a number of its concessions.

Of course the story does not end with today’s announcement. APRIL has made and broken promises like this before, so Greenpeace will be watching very closely.

Please watch video at bottom of post.

Stand Up for Better Tuna

Some of the biggest tuna brands, Bumble Bee, Starkist, and Chicken of the Sea, get failing grades for their destructive fishing practices that are responsible for killing tens of thousands of marine animals every year, including already vulnerable sharks, rays, and sea turtles.

Take action today to tell these brands to clean up their dirty tuna!

Greenpeace — Carbon Capture SCAM — How a False Climate Solution Bolsters Big Oil

How a False Climate Solution Bolsters Big Oil

This report shows how even the most ambitious plans for CCS also would not help avert the worst impacts of climate change. Its proponents in the federal government are also working with information that shows it would be the most expensive way to avoid CO2 pollution in the power sector. The Obama administration seems partly driven by faith in a technology that was supposed to sequester pollution from the atmosphere. However, the administration view also appears to be that fossil fuel projects never contribute to climate change. Every federal agency has an excuse for why its okay to support new coal, oil and gas supply projects.

Greenpeace — Is the Spanish Government bullying Spaniards? — BOKEH — PLANET EARTH FLOWERS

Imagine a world where the right to protest or organise a rally was only granted to the wealthy. This is about to happen in Spain.
Last week the Government passed a pack of reforms that will penalise, with heavy fines, most forms of social protests. Want to oppose coal burning with a protest near a coal power plant? Be prepared to pay 600.000 Euro – per activist! This is one of the direct consequences of the new “Gag Law”.

Imagina un mundo donde el derecho a protestar u organizar un rally fue concedido sólo a los ricos. Esto va a suceder en España.
La semana pasada el gobierno aprobó un paquete de reformas que penalizará con fuertes multas, formas más de protestas sociales. ¿Quiere oponerse a carbón ardiendo con una protesta cerca de una central eléctrica de carbón? Estar dispuestos a pagar 600.000 euros – activista! Esta es una de las consecuencias directas de la nueva “ley mordaza”.
