Here at , we're pushers of a controlled substance. It's called hope. And our new "Inspiring Action" video is dizzy with it. ? Every day from now to December is Earth Day.
Watch our new video, "Inspiring Action"
When we take action against environmental crimes, we also take action against despair. And there are times when inspiring other people to take action is by far the most powerful outcome that we could hope for.
Scientists are sounding more and more alarms about the fate of the ice caps, the acidification of our oceans, the loss of our equatorial rainforests and the consequences all these things will have on low-lying countries, on our health, on our ways of raising food, and the foundations of our civilization.
There are ample reasons for despair.
But many years ago, one of our activists summed up the Greenpeace ethos: "The optimism of action is better than the pessimism of the thought."
If you agree, we want you, and 2,999,999 people like you to sign up as climate activists. Together let’s act and protect our future.
The most important meeting of the century

YOU need to tell them that's not good enough.
YOU need to raise the bar on the world's expectations.
It's time to get involved. It's time to get your friends involved. It's time to get your parents or your kids involved.
Our first mission is to get the message out that we want our leaders to take personal responsibility for stopping .
The first step to ensuring that the climate summit makes real decision is to make sure that real decision makers are there.
