Helping Our Peninsula's Environment


What's New on HOPE's Website?

As of January 2011 HOPE's website provides some 400 web pages and dozens of articles. It also includes more than 1,000 links to the world's best available environmental science & law, democracy law & science; summaries and details of local projects; and perhaps most importantly how you can help protect our magnificent Monterey Peninsula.

This page is to help you learn about recent improvements to HOPE's website and resources. 


  1. Web-Log (Blog) added: Now HOPE's website is a lot more interactive - you can ask questions and add comments for everyone.
  2. Privacy Increased: We've removed Google as HOPE's search engine and replaced it with IXQuick. This is because Google and Yahoo have done things which seriously conflict with HOPE's mission: Yahoo turned over data in China that had people put in jail for political reasons. Google stores all your personal search requests and could turn them over to a US government agency (even though they did refuse to do so once) - or they might sell your personal search data commercially. AOL published the search histories of more than 650,000 of its users. By contrast, IXQuick makes a serious commitment to your search privacy. Among other benefits, it erases all your personal search ID data within 48 hours.
