Greenpeace is an international environmental protection organization that aims at seeking ways to stop pollution, protect the diversity of natural life and the atmosphere, and pursue a nuclear-free world.The origins of Greenpeace date back to 1971, when a group of Canadians and Americans formed a protesting team and tried, in a fishing boat, to stop the United States from carrying out nuclear tests in Amchitka, a tiny island off the West Coast of Alaska. They also wanted to record environments being damaged so that they could tell the world about them. Since then, ‘being at the site being destroyed’ has become an important way of Greenpeace to protest against environmental damage. Today, they deeply believe that despite the limitation of individual efforts, people can still make a difference.Greenpeace usually expresses its concerns and protests through the following ways: non-violent direct actions; negotiations with relevant authorities and international  treaty organizations; provision of environmental protection solutions and options through research; promotion of environmental technology and products development.To maintain its independence, Greenpeace does not accept subsidies from any governments or corporations.

The United Nations peacekeepers are sent by the Security Council to help implement peace agreements, monitor ceasefire, patrol demilitarized zones, establish buffer zones between hostile parties, prevent wars, and settle disputes peacefully through negotiation. However, the success of peacekeeping ultimately relies on agreement and cooperation between the conflicting parties.The United Nations has no army of its own. Every peacekeeping action is supported by voluntary troops and facilities provided by member states. The cost is covered by its peacekeeping budgets.

On 11 December 1997, the Kyoto Protocol of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change was adopted in Kyoto, Japan. Its aim is to monitor greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the global greenhouse effect. Under the adopted principle of ‘shared but differential responsibilities’, advanced industrialized countries will have to take initiatives to reduce their level first.As the world’s largest coal consumption nation, the United States emits a quarter of the world’s total amount of carbon dioxide, a major greenhouse gas. In the past decade, the growth range of its emission has exceeded that of India, Africa and Latin America combined. However, in March 2001, President George W. Bush openly stated that the United States would not implement the Kyoto Protocol, as standards for improvement were not yet set in the Protocol for developing countries.
