Greenpeace USA is the United States affiliate of Greenpeace, an international environmental nonprofit organization.

History

Greenpeace was first founded in the United States in 1975, when Greenpeace San Francisco opened, followed by groups in Hawaii, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Boston, Denver, and the Great Lakes region. In 1979, these offices merged into one entity to become "Greenpeace USA".[2]

Campaigns

Project Hot Seat was a campaign started by Greenpeace to raise global-warming awareness.[3] Its goal is to pressure members of the United States Congress to implement policies to curb and cut greenhouse gas emissions, and what Phil Radford, Greenpeace Executive Director said was "going to be key to making the environmental movement into a viable political force in Congress and around the country."[4]
