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!

    We need an act like COVID but for planet earth. EVERYONE pulled together across the globe in order to do what they can to stop the spread of the disease and even though we are still facing it we are over coming it. This is what needs to be done with the ocean; for example reduce over fishing massively, reduce and help prevent bycatch, focus on building up the population of our seas again so there is a balance in what we’re taking out and what remains. This is the same on land which all us humans can contribute to; for example recycle everything you possibly can, don’t buy plastic products or less of them and recycle, eating more of a plant based diet (as well as enjoying meat), use vegan products for cleaning your homes and beauty products, always. Stop killing of innocent animals and poaching. There’s so much humans can do but we are taking it too slow and easy and VERY soon human damage is sadly going to irreversible. If you don’t care about the animals fine (you have no heart) but do it for yourself and the future generation, grandkids, your own kids.

    My doing is for animals as they are such a rare beauty, a privilege to our world and one of the reasons humans thrive as without their biodiversity humans and the world wouldn’t be what it is today and humans are ugly creations who think it’s right to take whatever they want from this earth. Now we’re paying the price for our greed. Serves us right! I will always give back and do what I can for this earth my priorities are for the animals always have been. Just please give animals back the chance to thrive WITH us, they are not our enemies. Give back what they have given us. This beautiful world is failing and it needs it’s balance back without a variety of animals, a thriving ocean, grasslands and trees. Otherwise WE (us humans) have no hope. Thankfully, if we do fail nature will find a way to bounce back. Another beauty of it.

    Good luck with this campaign. Personally I am preparing for the worst, as I can see it is coming due to Government inaction, and corruption. Perhaps we should all be pushing hard to educate the public to vote Green. Noosa Council Qld Australia has declared a climate Emergency, we should lobby other councils to do the same.

    Carol Seiler Your list of 12 factors affecting the planet does not include the generation of garbage, and in particular non-biodegradable stuff. If it isn’t already, and I think it is, it will soon be about #3 on your list. It’s amazing how every age extinguishes itself. Seems to be a habit they can’t break.
