Priorities and campaigns The organization currently addresses many and varied environmental issues with a primary focus on efforts to stop global warming and the saving of the world's oceans and ancient forests. In addition to conventional environmental organization methods, Greenpeace uses nonviolent direct action in many of its campaigns.
Think tanks Think tanks, under the Greenpeace umbrella, propose blueprints for world's transition to renewable energy. The focus is to reduce carbon emissions without compromising on economic growth. Greenpeace think tanks also focus on individual nation's energy scenarios.
The origins of Greenpeace lie in the peace movement and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament generally, and particularly in the “Don't Make A Wave Committee”. Bill Darnell has received the credit for combining the words "green" and "peace", thereby giving the organization its future name. Irving Stowe, Paul Coté and Jim Bohlen are co-founders of Greenpeace. Greenpeace History The year 1996 is a year of celebration for greenpeace
