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 animal and biological life. We have four demands.

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

a. The global climate is rapidly warming. 

b. The global climate is becoming increasingly unstable due to atmospheric greenhouse gas pollution (carbon, methane, and nitrous oxide,) dominantly coming from the human-caused burning of fossil fuels.

c. Despite 60 years of credible scientific warnings, global warming is still rising and has now reached dangerous levels, causing widespread deterioration across our climate and environment.

We are now facing a rapidly worstening climate change scenario.

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

Getting close to the scientifically correct 2025 global targets will dramatically reduce damaging atmospheric carbon, methane, and nitrous oxide.

It will also help prevent the loss of 10 million lives a year worldwide from 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.

Many of these climate change consequences will be catastrophic.



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 threat, the 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 our nation can no longer avoid or prevent. (About one-half of humanity could die off by 2050 if our politicians fail us 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 animal and biological life on Earth. 

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

    We are fast approaching a time when we will no longer have the capacity to turn back the acceleration of global warming to a level that will allow the survival of human civilization and many other higher life forms. The IPCC reports do not even include the effects of unavoidable tipping points which are coming soon. Our very survival is at stake. I urge you to educate yourself on the full science of climate change to adjust goals to the real situation. We have very little time left to make major changes and reduce emissions drastically. You have a responsibility. DO NOT FAIL US.

    I’m impressed with the comprehensive analysis of our global predicament, and just beginning to explore dialectical meta-systemic thinking. I suggest reading Joe Brewer’s Design Pathway to Regenerating Earth to get a picture of the most realistic and scalable solution to the predicament.

    yes, there is something we can do about those irresponsible regarding their use of the planet’s resources for very minute short-term gains.

    I foresaw the environmental problems that we now face many years ago because of our wrong actions. It is more than time that we take steps to endeavor to curtail climate change. What is the point of making money if we make the very home we live on inhabitable? I demand that action is taken NOW for the sake of the future of humanity and all other species that inhabit the Earth.
