Jym Dyer's Greenpeace Page

These are my own personal pages of Greenpeace information. I do not represent Greenpeace in any way, nor do I receive compensation for my volunteer effort to redistribute the information that I get from them. Greenpeace has its own official pages at http://www.greenpeace.org/, and some more websites:

  • Greenpeace USA
  • Stop Star Wars
  • True Food Network

  • Here's a selection of fact sheets, reports, press releases, etc. that I've downloaded from Greenpeace's Environet BBS, Greenpeace's gopher site, and EcoNet, and translated into web pages. The official Greenpeace page above has a more recent and comprehensive set of documents.

    I put much of this stuff on the Internet back before the days of web pages. Sadly, it's all still relevant!

    Environet was a dialup BBS maintained by Greenpeace, and I used to download most of my information from there. These days that information can be obtained from their web site.

    EcoNet was an ISP and newsgroup conferencing system operated by the Institute for Global Communications. They're still around, but they aren't really an ISP anymore.
