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!

    A disclosure by NASA about Climate Change:

    Humans have caused major climate changes to happen already, and we have set in motion more changes still. However, if we stopped emitting greenhouse gases today, the rise in global temperatures would begin to flatten within a few years. Temperatures would then plateau but remain well-elevated for many, many centuries.

    I helped save 3 million bees in 2015 with petitions and have been helping wildlife for long time. I helped save ten percent of the Amazon rain forest. As we lose more rain forest to illegal logging we must protect the rain forest and save our atmosphere oxygen. When the rain forest was burning and still is that we lost 20% of the worlds oxygen. As a person with disablities we need to go bold on climate and commit to ensuring a green transition to clean energy. End the wars in Ukraine and Iraq that the Iraq war has been going on since I was in high school. Sure it’s easy to plan and go to war harder to get out of one. Alexander the Great. I’m reading history and also wars a environment problem and we need to bring back diplomacy and save us from ourselves. Thank you.

    I became aware of the climate situation in 1973, I think it is about time for our politicians to take up this issue, (like president Carter, and unlike president Raygun), we are getting very close to the tipping point, (anyone for boiling the oceans?)

    Ao assinar esta petição, faço um apelo para que os mecanismos a que estamos submetidos, relativamente ao aquecimento global, nos sejam apresentados de forma clara e honesta, sem tentativas de minimizar suas reais consequências, já que seremos nós as principais vítimas que iremos sofrer suas consequências.

    Julie-ann Schmidt, I honestly can’t believe how quick humanity has forgotten that it’s pollution & is the most biggest 1️ then the green house immitions is the 2 one, that just shows how up 2 80% of the population are sheep just what the 1% like us to be, now covid19 is there way of depopulation &there’s no end of having to have continues booster shots 4 the rest of every ones lifes thank you for having space so I could share this knowledge with my sisters & brothers of humanity.
