Sign the Petition to Declare a 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 to preserve and protect the future of humanity as well as Earth's other biological life.

Based on abundant scientific evidence, we recognize that our global climate is rapidly warming and becoming increasingly unstable due to human-caused atmospheric carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels. We also recognize that in spite of 35 years of credible scientific warnings, global warming is still rising and is now at dangerous levels!

We have already seen global warming-aggravated weather, like record-breaking floods, hurricanes, and wildfires. We have witnessed the "worst in centuries" droughts and dust storms. We have experienced alternating unseasonably cold then warm winters, extreme storms, bomb cyclones and rain bombs where weeks or months worth of rain falls in a few hours or a few days.

With our own eyes, we see that something very abnormal is happening to the previous stability of our normal weather and seasons and that global warming connected consequences (like those just mentioned,) are becoming more frequent, more severe and are affecting larger and larger areas!

We recognize that if we do not immediately and radically reduce our global fossil fuel burning behaviors before additional global warming tipping points are crossed, the destabilization of our climate will continue at even faster rates causing among other things, unprecedented crop failures and unthinkable mass starvation.

Our best climate scientists have calculated that if we do not meet the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, we will face mass human extinction (as much as 70-90% of humanity will likely die in as little as the next 30-50 years.) If we fail to make these 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets, escalating global warming will also become all but out of our control for decades!

Rising global warming has already become the 21st century's single greatest disruptor of economic, political and social stability. It also acts to amplify our other global problems.

No one is ultimately safe from this global warming emergency. Global warming consequences are already affecting millions in many areas of the world. Individuals and businesses are currently being forced to deal with escalating catastrophes, food and resource depletion, and the mass migration of desperate climagees (climate migrants.) In the not too distant future, global warming catastrophes will be affecting billions of individuals everywhere on Earth! 

We now face a world in which rising global warming can cause mass human extinction and create increasing social, economic and political chaos, not sometime after 2100, but as soon as the next few decades.

As our average global temperatures continue to rise, the world's 6 other major social, economic and political problems will also worsen and cross-react with each other as well as with the key global warming tipping points (found here.)

Our other major global problems:

  • Growing economic inequity, poverty, and instability
  • War and regional conflicts
  • Food and resource depletion
  • Political instability and injustice
  • Ocean fish stock depletion 
  • Water pollution, water table loss, and other pollution
  • Desertification and deforestation
  • Loss of biodiversity
  • Increasing potential for pandemics and other global health crises
  • Severe droughts, floods, and wildfires
  • Rising sea levels

This will further increase the severity, frequency, and scale (size) of the above other major global problems we all now face, making them even harder to resolve!

Despite 35 years of scientific reports as well as 21 International conferences about the near-certain extinction effects of the carbon (and methane,) pollution of our atmosphere, global warming temperatures have both continued to rise and have accelerated to levels that have passed dangerous tipping points.

There is true urgency to this global warming extinction emergency!

Our average global temperature and atmospheric carbon levels are far too close to crossing the near-extinction and final extinction tipping points. If we fail to make the 2025 reduction targets, this extinction emergency becomes a no-win game for everyone, no matter how much money or power they might have and, no matter where they might try to escape to!  

Our current global warming extinction emergency can only be resolved by immediately and radically reducing the human-caused production of carbon and other key greenhouse gases produced directly and indirectly from the global burning of fossil fuels.

At this "it is almost already too little too late" moment in history, the necessary fossil fuel use reductions needed to save us can only be achieved by successfully meeting our last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets lead and enforced by our governments! 

Therefore, as global citizens of every nation on Earth, we demand that our national political leaders act now before it is too late to prevent mass human extinction within our lifetimes! 

We demand that they:

1. Meet immediately to formally declare both a national and international Global Warming Extinction Emergency. 

2. Pass enforceable and verifiable national and international laws that would successfully achieve the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. And, 

3. Call for the immediate mass mobilization and allocation of ALL the necessary resources and personnel to execute ALL critical actions required to fully resolve our current global warming extinction emergency(See Part 3 of the Job One for Humanity Plan for a complete list of all critical government-driven actions needed to save the future.)

By electronically signing this petition (in the box below,) I am personally and officially notifying my national politicians of this demand to immediately meet and take all required actions described in this emergency petition in order to protect, preserve, and advance the continuing evolution of humanity and life on Earth.

Furthermore, realizing that most of the worst global warming consequences will take centuries to thousands of years to repair, which will create an unthinkable nightmare for any surviving future generations, I further pledge to continue to act to help resolve this extinction threat and emergency until it is over.

    A poll published last week found that nearly 63 per cent of the British public supported the UK parliament declaring a climate emergency – and 76 per cent said they are going to vote differently to protect the planet against climate change. What happened in the UK Parliament on 1 May 2019 was extraordinary because it shows that climate action campaigning makes a difference after all. The Conservative’s environment secretary Michael Gove invoked the kind of bipartisan spirit that helped Britain through the world wars of the 20th century when he said: “We’ve led in the past in defence of freedom, let’s lead now in defence of our planet.”

    These are big words that leaders around the planet could take inspiration from: not “saving”, but defending our planet, and all the life forms on it.

    Thank you for the valuable work you have done with this climate emergency petition over the years!
