Smog is India’s new Instagram filter

Ah Greenpeace, my old friend it’s great to find you here so I can become reacquainted with your methodology. My husband and I became members of Greenpeace in 1986 after the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior in ’85. We made monthly contributions for decades. I ran across one of your Quarterlies from Summer 1996. Sadly, the titles of the feature stories could be reprinted today, i.e. “The Link Between Human Health and the Environment.” or “Belugas in Danger. Can humans be far behind?”. And in Winter 1996 “The X Fields” A genetically altered plant is invading America’s soybean crops. It seems like some problems just won’t go away. But on a positive note, you were instrumental in preventing Antarctica from oil drilling in 1987 and in 1991 26 parties to the Antarctic Treaty negotiated a 50 year ban on mining for oil, gas or any other minerals and insisted on more rigorous treatment of sewage and a ban on incineration of waste. I have a Greenpeace watch, Greenpeace checks, many t-shirts and sweatshirts and a plaque given to my husband in 1989 for “generous support of worldwide action for a cleaner more peaceful earth as a Friend of the Rainbow Warrior.” My husband was very proud of that. It is framed and hangs in my kitchen. My husband passed away in 2008 of cancer. I look forward to catching up on all that Greenpeace and Greenpeace Action have been involved in.
