Greenpeace III : journey into the bomb by David Fraser McTaggart( Book )

12 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David McTaggart is a 39-year-old Canadian expatriate with a boat, no commitments, and no politics when, in 1972, he succumbs to the appeal by the Canadian organization Greenpeace for someone to sail into the French nuclear test zone at Mururoa atoll. Competitiveness? Romance? A sailor's indignation ""that the French, or anybody else, should dare to cordon off a huge slab of the high seas in defiance of every known maritime law""? And McTaggart, based in New Zealand, is just about the only one with a boat capable of making the 3,000-mile trip in time. After efforts by local authorities to stop him, however, and harassment by French vessels at the site, McTaggart begins to appreciate the significance of his venture: ""the individual is anything but a powerless cipher."" He and his two shipmates have at least delayed the bomb tests, and McTaggart is somewhat awed that his small boat could affect ""the most incredible weapon of mass destruction ever devised."" Then a French vessel rams his sloop, and the tests take place anyway, completing McTaggart's politicization. Not only does he sail for Mururoa a second time, he is so outraged at the French government that he ties suit for damages. After a favorable ruling, McTaggart dreams that his victory may lead someday to the collapse of ""the whole elaborate interlocking structure of the military-industrial-complex."" Despite such grandiose statements, McTaggart's is an exciting story that does prove the power of one determined individual to make a resounding nuisance of himself

Thermageddon : countdown to 2030 by Robert Hunter( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2000, Time magazine named Robert Hunter one of the eco-heroes of the twentieth century, recognizing him - along with the likes of Rachel Carson and Jacques Cousteau - as a cofounder of Greenpeace and a pioneer in ecological activism. In this book, Hunter draws on the experience of a lifetime to argue that time is running out for the Earth. He and many respected scientists believe that all environmental lines will be crossed around the year 2030, when climate change will be so extreme as to be irreversible and what he calls Thermageddon - thermal Armageddon - may ensue." "Hunter reviews the evidence of global warming amassed by scientists around the world and spells out the devastating consequences of inaction. Cogently analyzing the politics surrounding the issue of climate change, he also underscores the role each of us in North America plays in global warming by dint of the way we live as "energy mammoths." But his dire warning would serve little purpose if it led to passivity or resignation. Part apology, part record of environmental activism, part indictment of the "Carbon Club" of energy interests, Thermageddon is also a stirring call for individuals and nations to alter our climate-damaging habits. Hunter outlines why we should care about the future of our planet. He suggests how, if we act responsibly to step back from the brink, we can stop our slide into catastrophe. But time, unlike political expedience, is fast running out."--Jacket

Greenpeace is known around the world for its activism and education surrounding environmental and biodiversity issues. With a presence in more than forty countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia, and the Pacific, Greenpeace is undoubtedly a dominant force in the realm of environmental activism. This is the story of how Greenpeace came to be. In September 1971, a small group of activists boarded a small fishing boat in Vancouver, Canada, and headed north towards a tiny island, Amchitka, west of Alaska in the Aleutian Islands, where the U.S. government was conducting underground nuclear tests
