Climate Change Emergency Petition 

We, the citizens of our nation and of the Earth, are endowed with certain rights, powers, and obligations, which demand we act to preserve and protect the future of humanity and Earth's other biological life.

Our petition has four demands.

Based on abundant scientific evidence or our own climate change experiences, we recognize that:

a. The global climate is rapidly warming. 

b. Despite 60 years of credible scientific warnings, climate change and global warming are still rising and have reached dangerous levels, causing widespread deterioration across our climate and environment.

c. The global climate is becoming increasingly unstable due to atmospheric greenhouse gas pollution (carbon, methane, and nitrous oxide), which is dominantly coming from the burning of human-caused fossil fuels. This is an urgent crisis that demands immediate action.

We are now facing a rapidly worsening climate change scenario.

This climate change-driven environmental deterioration and escalating extinction threat can only be fixed by our politicians immediately enacting the scientifically correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.

Getting close to the 2025 global targets will dramatically reduce the damaging atmospheric carbon, methane, and nitrous oxide and prevent the worst consequences of climate change.

It will also help prevent the loss of at least 10 million lives a year worldwide from just the painful and debilitating health-related effects of the toxic air pollution caused by fossil fuel burning. 

If we do not get close to the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets, the frequency, severity, and size of global climate change consequences will rise dramatically from 2025-2031 and beyond and far beyond what we can quickly adapt to.

Many of these climate change consequences will be catastrophic and last for hundreds to thousands of years.



Therefore, I hereby demand that our politicians and government leaders meet to enact these four demands:

1. Declare a national and international Climate Change Emergency. (We will never be able to manage worsening climate change unless we call the climate change emergency that it really is.)

2. Immediately pass enforceable and verifiable national and international laws that will get us close to the required 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. (These climate change-related laws and actions are described here.)

3. Order an immediate government mass mobilization of ALL necessary resources and personnel to execute ALL required governmental actions to come as close as possible to the correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. And finally,

4. Start the necessary climate change disaster preparation, adaptation, and resilience-building needed for soon-arriving, severe climate change consequences that our nation can no longer avoid or prevent. (About one-half of humanity could die off by 2050-2070 if our politicians fail us once again.)

By electronically signing this petition below, I am officially petitioning and demanding that my national politicians execute the four above actions to protect and preserve humanity and all biological life on Earth. 

Furthermore, realizing that the climate change consequences that are already occurring will take centuries to thousands of years to repair (creating an unbearable nightmare for surviving generations), I further pledge to continue to help resolve our intensifying climate change emergency until it is fixed!

    There is a structure to the Earth planetary oxygen system; an Oxygenosphere, to which humans are physiologically integrated. This structural, phi-equilibrium, system is based on energy levels. Humans are not generally away of it yet. If the energy increases (rising temperature; global warming) tips over this equilibrium system, there will be mass species extinction, an oxygen-event, that humanity are programmed into. One recalls that the very first mass extinction of species, in geological times, is The Great Oxygen Event, so-called. The situation is more uncertain than people realize.

    global warming calls for a universal action for change in order to reclaim nature. human acts like deforestation, bush clearance, wetland reclamation among others needs a positive action against the practices. therefore its our quest for action

    Would you pl go through one of my articles, namely, “Auto-functional Green Movement for Social, Economic and Ecological Harmony” available in the website : and give your observations about its possibilities if implemented in any community and suggest any addition or alteration or try to make an experimentation with the proposal ?
