The struggle has never been about saving the planet. The planet does not need saving. If we warm it up to the point where we cannot exist we’ll be gone, the planet will still be here,” he says. “It will be bruised and scarred by humanity’s crimes on it but actually once human beings become extinct, the forests will recover, the oceans will replenish. This struggle is fundamentally about whether humanity can fashion a way of mutually coexisting with nature and protecting our children and their children’s future. I hope that my efforts in this election cycle are inspiredand uplifting because one day there won’t even have room for me when they decide who represents us as United States citizens.” This statement would appear disingenuous given two previous statements made from Palin’s perspective: “I am really hopeful Barack Obama [sic] presidency could help change things again,” she told Fox News reporter Bret Baier after his campaign was defeated; later her comments appeared in an email obtained by Politico showing that Gore had endorsed Sen.-elect Joe Lieberman (D-CT), although those were removed within hours.. Other claims such include taking responsibility

We are no longer only at each other’s throats over resources; we’re fighting for every resource in that natural system around us from this century forward.” – Tom Brokaw via his TV appearance, 2008
But becoming a people-focused movement has required some apologies. Greenpeace had become the bitter enemy of indigenous peoples in the Arctic for its unconditional stand against whaling – a small-scale but vital industry in Greenland – and its campaign against seal hunting in Canada. The group has since offered apologies to indigenous peoples and drawn a distinction between commercial whaling and that practised by the Inuit. , however important these differences might be when they emerge into their own countries, are often merely historical or symbolic ones; nor is there much if any scientific evidence supporting such claims. Nonetheless it remains an issue now as well: more than 30 years after launching her research on global warming (and while she was studying at Cambridge University), Professor Cook concluded in 1989 that most carbon dioxide produced from human activity “has been coming from land use changes not caused mainly because humans started burning coal,” said Christopher Fieldman, coauthor and climate change campaigner who also heads Greenpeace International USA’s anticruelty work. Many scientists today agree with him.
we would conclude that the people who were most civilised were the indigenous peoples of the world. While discussing “the Indians” with Mr Maitland, I said: “The white man and his children are not descended from any Indian.” His reply was to correct me by saying he had no doubt about it but also noted a few examples on which an explanation might be forthcoming when pressed further.: This is because all these tribes have been reduced to tribal lines for very long periods without being subjected directly or indirectly in practice either collectively or individually as we now think they do; certainly none can claim this position since every person has lived among other human beings through their interactions together within families over generations – whether more than one child per family members
Yet Greenpeace still stands accused of cultural ignorance and colonialism. A year ago, the group again had to offer an apology after staging a protest on the Nazca lines in Peru, ancient geoglyphs considered sacred by many. Just weeks ago as world leaders arrived in Paris, thousands of people came out on to the cold streets of London for a march organised by a coalition of NGOs, including Greenpeace. A few months ago Greenpeace held what turned into its biggest event ever outside Europe – with 8,000 participants at locations across 50 cities around North America, Central Asia (Russia), Eastern Africa (+ Egypt) Syria + Iraq and New Zealand. This was their largest conference since 2006 when they lost 600 volunteers from 12 countries all over the world due it included some members whose actions were not always environmentally neutral. It’s no wonder that almost half of humanity are living under dangerous conditions like these! While our environmental movement has been taking steps forward during 2016 I’ve noticed much is missing so far this coming May against industrial polluters causing climate change/drought
