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 rapidly escalating global warming and its consequent climate destabilization and consequences 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 global warming emergency.

    Gisele Tadlock stated: “I do not know how I can be active in helping to stop the global warming of our planet.” Gisele, you can start at home, teaching your children, and possibly enlisting your neighbours to begin working on their own properties to enrich your environment. Instead of a pristine yard with expensive grass for decoration, you might consider planting various trees..fruit trees included. Trees filter a lot of pollutants from the atmosphere, and many of them are useful for bird habitats, squirrels, and other animals. and as a bonus, many have nuts or leaves that provide sustenance for various creatures. If you have room in your back yard, you can install a pond. You can purchase the pond shell from hardware stores, and dig a hole that it will fit in with the top level with the ground. Add some pond fish…pond goldfish are fine…and get some fish food to feed them occasionally. If you live in an area that has mosquitoes, the mature females will lay eggs in your pond, and when the larvae hatch, the fish will gladly dine on the fresh food, reducing the potential number of mosquitoes in your area.

    You may want to invest in a bat habitat (house)…similar to a bird house. Bats will consume a lot of mosquitoes in the evening, and that reduces the problem of disease carried by mosquitoes.

    You may want to encourage birds, as well, by setting out some bird feeders and bird houses. Read up on the type of birds there are in your area, and what their nesting preferences are. Make sure that your children, if they are old enough, help with the recreation of the yard.

    The more plants and trees that you have, the more filtering of pollution there will be. I hope that you can find these suggestions helpful. It is what we do here in NW FLA, and it works pretty well.

    It’s sad how we treat our earth and the species living on this Earth including our own. We need to do something before it’s too late. Reclaim our voices to stop this destruction.

    I do not know how I can be active in helping to stop the global warming of our planet. I worry for my children and eventually will have grandchildren what kind of world will they inherit. I currently reside in California which has water rationing and want to return to Oregon or Washington eventually where I can grow my own food and have a orchard without worrying about the drought. What can we do as individuals to prevent the upcoming disasters of global warming.

    Looking to help need advice.

    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.
