  • Sign the Petition to Declare a Formal Global Warming State of Emergency

    We, the citizens of our nation and of our Earth, are endowed with certain rights, powers, and obligations, which demand we act both individually and collectively to protect and preserve the ongoing evolution of life on Earth, including our future generations.

    Based upon a preponderance of scientific evidence we recognize our global climate is rapidly warming and becoming increasingly unstable due to human-caused carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels.

    If we do not change course before more critical global warming tipping points are crossed, this destabilization of our climate will continue to cause ever-increasing suffering and unthinkable devastation within both current and future generations. If left unresolved any longer, it will eventually cause the complete extinction or near extinction of the human species and much of our other biological life in as little as the next 30-50 years.

    We further recognize that because of numerous climatic and human factors, for all intents and purposes global warming has become out of our meaningful control for at least the next 50 years and, the consequent additional consequences occurring over this additional 50 year time period is now the greatest threat to the security of all nations, comparable in final scope to the impact to global nuclear war.

    We face a world in which escalating average global temperature rises will lead to a massive destabilization of normal life affecting first millions, then billions of people forced to deal with ongoing climate catastrophes, severe food shortages and other resource depletion, and mass climate change migrations. (if necessary, see this page which proves the statements of this paragraph are factual.)

    Nearly all of the other existing major problems our world faces today will also worsen due to the threat multiplier and accelerating disruptor consequences of escalating global warming.

    All of the ecological, economic and political problems (listed below) will also cross-react with each other and greatly magnify those problems in frequency, severity and size as average global temperatures continues to rise.

    • Food and resource depletion
    • Severe droughts, floods, and wildfires
    • Rising sea levels
    • Water pollution and water table loss
    • Desertification and deforestation
    • Ocean fish stock depletion
    • Growing economic inequity, poverty, and instability
    • Political instability and injustice
    • War and regional conflicts
    • Increasing potential of pandemics and other health crises

    Despite 30 + years of education, study, and discussion about the possible extinction level effects of human-caused carbon and methane pollution of our atmosphere, global warming temperatures have escalated to levels that have already passed some tipping points and are close to passing other even more critical global warming tipping points with impacts that have now become irreversible for centuries to thousands of years.

    In order to honestly deal with the global warming emergency at hand, we must immediately stop the continued rise of average global temperature. This can only be done at this point by radically and immediately decreasing the human-caused production of greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels.

    Failure to resolve global warming for ourselves and future generations is no longer a survivable option.

    As global citizens of every nation on Earth, we ask you, our national leaders, to:

    a. first initiate the necessary steps to formally declare a national and international global warming State of Emergency. And then at this same emergency meeting,

    b. call for the immediate allocation of all of the resources, personnel, and actions necessary (like those described particularly in Part 3 of the complete Job One for Humanity Plan,) to quickly resolve this State of Emergency to sustainably protect, preserve, and advance the continued evolution of humanity and life on Earth.  

    By signing this petition now (in the box below,) I am notifying my national politicians of my demand for their immediate action on this matter and, I am also pledging to act together with others as one human family to acknowledge and resolve our escalating global warming emergency.
