Greenpeace was first founded in the United States in 1975, when Greenpeace San Francisco opened, followed by groups in Seattle, Portland, and Denver. In 1979, these offices merged into one entity to become "Greenpeace USA."
Project Hot Seat was a campaign started by Greenpeace. 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."
