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 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 (aka climate change,) 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 effects 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 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 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 (like those described in the 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 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.

    syed ahThe Great Halt

    The in-equilibrium of the earth definitely contributes to the slower downing rotation motion of earth. However its elliptical path on which it revolves round the sun will remain the same. One could find uncertain environment on earth. Most of the northern part of earth will be under total complete dark blanket. There will be no sunlight. This non availability of sunlight attracts more and more clouds in that area. The evaporation of ocean waters in the form of snow will be deposited in that area. That snow will never melts and will remain there and keep going on heaping. The sea level goes diminishing gradually, because a great portion of water will continuously depositing in the dark blanket area of the earth. With this continuous process of great depositions in the north pole, the earth finds its equilibrium by moving & tilting down ultimately go behind the sun permanently. The maximum sun light & energy moving from the sun to the part of earth will be from South Pole up to the equator. The temperature of one part of the earth will rise and the other part will drop. One part of earth from equator towards north will be having complete dark. And the other part from equator towards south will be having complete sun shine. Earth will still making its rotations, but these rotations will not shape the days and nights on earth. The earth will facing the sun from south pole. The water in the oceans will boil and the whole area would be under thick cloud. These clouds will be attracted in the colder region of the earth. The rotation movement of the earth will come under the force of vague magnetic attraction and repulsion of elliptical orbit of the sun on which the earth revolves around the sun. This un-even energy of repulsion and attraction will slower down the movement of the earth. Finally the rotation of earth comes to halt slowly. This great halt of the earth will lost its gravitational force. All the gravitational force will be discharged from the earth crust. The discharging of gravitation force will leads to the weightlessness on the earth. The gases and other things on earth will be escape out of the space and will never return back. The hard mass which is inside the earth will come out from the earth and will floats into the space. Oceans will dry and some water in the form of ice will remain on earth’s northern pole of dark blanket. The all other gases will escape from earth the earth crust will be exposed to the space the blue skies will be no more only the black skies of the space could be seen from the crust of the earth.

    The earth has already reached the threshold of 400ppm of CO2. It is now or never. The war has been on for long. If we don’t take any actions soon, it will be us on the losing side this time.
