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

sign_petition_now_button_red.gif

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 global warming tipping points are crossed, this destabilization of our climate  will continue to cause ever-increasing suffering and potentially irreversible devastation for both current and future generations. If left unresolved, it could cause the extinction, or near extinction, of the human species.

We further recognize that rapidly escalating global warming and its consequent climate destabilization is the greatest currently active threat to the security of all nations, comparable in scope of impact to global nuclear war. Escalating average global temperature rises will lead to destabilization affecting first millions, then billions of people forced to deal with ongoing climate catastrophes, food and other resource depletion, and mass migrations.

Nearly all of the major problems our world faces today worsen and multiply due to escalating global warming. All of the ecological, economic and political problems listed below will cross-intensify and therefore worsen as average global temperatures rises.

  • Food and resource depletion
  • Severe droughts, floods, and wildfires
  • Rising sea levels
  • Water pollution and water table loss
  • Desertification and deforestation
  • Ocean fish stock depletions
  • 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 irreversible effects of human-caused carbon and methane pollution of our atmosphere, global warming temperatures have escalated to levels that may have already passed or be close to passing global warming tipping points with impacts that are irreversible. We must immediately reverse the continued rise of average global temperature by decreasing human-caused production of greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels.

Failure to resolve global warming for ourselves and future generations is simply not a survivable option.

As global citizens of every nation on Earth, we ask you, our national leaders, to initiate the necessary steps to formally declare a national and international global warming State of Emergency, calling for the immediate allocation of the needed research, resources, personnel, and interventions to quickly resolve this State of Emergency and sustainably protect, preserve, and advance the continued evolution of humanity and life on Earth.  

By signing this petition now, I pledge to act together with others as one human family to acknowledge and resolve the escalating global warming-caused climate destabilization crisis.

    My idea to reverse the effects of global warming is to spray a special kind of gass into the air that will make the excess of the carbon dioxide solid and fall to the ground as a non polluting substance or possibly fertilize the ground so we can grow our biosphere back.

    we must stop global warming now!!!! In years to come, hurricanes like these recent ones will become common place. Many parts of Florida and the East Coast will become uninhabitable. Rising ocean levels will flood large areas. Poor countries in Africa will see mass starvation because of terrible droughts and terrible heat waves. Perhaps millions of people could die and spread disease. Also tropical diseases could even come to America, spread by mosqitos that have adapted to Americas warmer climate. There will be mass extinction of animals—polar bears, seals and other northern animals will be gone in 10 years. As the ocean warms, the littlest life forms that provide nutrition to the bigger sea animals will die off,the great reefs will also die. We will not be able to count of the oceans for food anymore. The midwest—where most of our grain comes from, will just be dry deserts, and forest fires in California and other western states will destroy millions of acres. Even Lake Mead could eventually go dry as there will be less and less snow fall and water run-off from the mountains. No one will be winners if this happens—only the ones that can control water distribution. I predict the next big wars will not be fought over land or religion, but WATER!!! Read the Bible as much of this has already been predicted and is happening much faster than we ever thought. Another fear is that the frozen tundra is keeping dangerous methane gas trapped underground. But as this frozen tundra melts, this dangerous, deadly gas will be released into our atmoshere—very, very dangerous. It could also further speed up global warming. But there is little we can do now, especially with Trump in office. He is totally 100% against the environment and is signing Executive Orders everyday to take back any environmental laws that were established during Obamas term. Lord please help us and get that guy out of office before it is too late!!!

    If climageddon is correct and we have only a 1-2 decades to avoid disaster, I do not have much hope for humanity. Particularly with the current MORON in charge. Too bad for the younger folks who did not do anything “wrong” and shame on the adults who have been reluctant to change, and most sad is the impact on the truly innocent other life forms on the planet whom we will take into extinction with us.

    Anyone who doubts the truth about global warming is either in a state of denial, or is under the misguided impression that this is a partisan issue instead of a human one.

    WHAT are you THINKING?? THINKING THAT ALL THE RICH PEOPLE WILL BE LIVING THE GOOD LIFE AND THE REST FOR US WILL BE LEFT TO DIE?? GLOBAL WARMING IS DESTROYING OUR WORLD AND WE NEED TO STOP IT. NOW. OR MANKIND IS DOOMED.

    It’s already too late. Birth control should have been mandatory 100 years ago. Get fixed people, I did, or do you really need 10 kids? Stupid humans still burning coal. Wind, solar, water and tidal energy should be the only resources. Plant a tree. Ride a bike. Walk. Recycle. Buy used.

    global warming posts serious threats to the human race and we need to start acting now. The problem is, most people are having a tough time accepting the fact that global warming could cause severe damage to us as a species, and that’s slowing us down. We all must accept the fact that climate change has taken its poll and is rising ever more rapidly. It is inevitable that climate will change, and the most we can do now is slow it down.

    As the scientific data on global climate change has been building up over the past decade, scientists have been trying to sound the alarm.

    It’s time to stop ignoring their concerns and start doing something about them. If we don’t act now, we will reach a tipping point from

    which there will be no going back.

    The level of inaction since the book Limits to Growth was first published in 1972 is flabberghasting. I read the book when it came out and expected it to become a rallying cry for humanity to take heed and change our ways. No such luck.


    In many ways, I think it proves that mankind is like a cancer on the planet. There is no going back, and going forward successfully requires more commitment than we are likely to be able to muster. The biggest shame is that the future can be predicted and we choose to ignore it, and we will take a goodly portion of other animals with us into extinction.
