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 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 because of numerous technical and human factors, for all intents and purposes global warming has become irreversible for at least the next 50 years and the consequent additional consequences occurring over this additional 50 year time period 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 a massive destabilization of normal life affecting first millions, then billions of people forced to deal with ongoing climate catastrophes, severe food and other resource depletion, and mass climate migrations. (See this page which proves the statements of this paragraph are factual.)

Nearly all of the other major problems our world faces today will also worsen due to the threat multiplier and great disruptor of escalating global warming. All of the ecological, economic and political problems (listed just below) will cross over into each other and greatly magnify those problems 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 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 now irreversible for centuries to thousands of years.

We must immediately stop the continued rise of average global temperature by 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 simply not a survivable option.

As global citizens of every nation on Earth, we ask you, our national leaders, to first initiate the necessary steps to formally declare a national and international global warming State of Emergency. And then at this emergency meeting, call for the immediate allocation of all of the resources, personnel, and actions necessary 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 action on this matter and, I am also pledging to act together with others as one human family to acknowledge and resolve the escalating global warming emergency.

    Humans cannot live under such conditions, over time we our future generations will suffer due to our actions. But it can be solved if we all put in the effort to make our world a cleaner place for everyone.

    There is a story about president Roosevelt in 1942 at the entry of the US into WW2, it goes something like this,

    President Roosevelt invited the leaders of industry to the white house to inform them about the upcoming war and their role in supplying tools for the huge job at hand, there was an urgent need for guns tanks boats and aircraft, he said to the aircraft manufactures that they needed 30,000 war planes within the next 12 months, they said it was impossible, he handed them a blank cheque and told them not to waste a minute, end result? they built 120,000 war planes within the following 12 months,

    today we have 100 times the capacity they had in 1942,

    what we do not have is agreement, cooperation,

    we have a great deal of work to do, China is probably the leader at this time, but we need cooperation from the whole world,

    China Europe Japan India California and others are doing well but we need to do much more,

    Canada and the rest of the US are asleep,

    we need a huge concerted effort, I am convinced we can do it, but without that effort I fear the worst.

    The world is in danger, the world and it’s people are suffering. Are we not to take action in this time of need? People need to stop focusing on power, greed and control and see the big picture. Our Earth is dying.

    I saw the video of the starving polar bear and it pushed me to become aware of how I can help make a change!
