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 emergency. Global warming consequences are affecting millions in many areas of the world. Individuals and businesses are already being forced to deal with escalating catastrophes, food and resource depletion as well as the mass migrations 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 will 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 average global temperatures continue to rise, the world's other social, economic and political problems will naturally worsen and cross-react with each other as well as with the 11 key global warming tipping points.

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

This will further increase the severity, frequency, and scale (size) of these other global problems we all face (above) making them even more difficult to manage or 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 already passed dangerous tipping points.

There is true urgency to this real emergency!

Our average global temperature and atmospheric carbon levels are far too close to crossing the near-extinction and the final extinction global warming tipping points. If we fail to make the 2025 reduction targets, because of the already-in-process near-extinction and final extinction tipping points, this 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 crisis 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 almost "too little too late" moment in time, 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! 

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! 

We demand that they:

1. Meet immediately to formally declare a national and international global warming State of 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 allocation of ALL necessary resources and personnel and, initiate a global mass mobilization of all of these allocated resources to execute all critical actions required to fully and finally resolve our current global warming State of 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 the 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 global warming consequences will take centuries to thousands of years to repair creating an unthinkable nightmare for future generations, I further pledge to act using all of my personal means to help resolve this emergency.

    I’m a 16 year old high school student who really wants people to take action on global warming because people like to turn a blind eye to global warming and just forget about it. But we need to acknowledge that global warming is here to stay if we don’t do anything about it then it’s just going to get worse. People aren’t going to take action until it’s too late and that’s why we have to take action now before it’s too late.

    This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed by the youth of today. Older generations have given us a problem but we can be the solution by working together for change, we can’t sit around forever and wait for things to get better on their own because they won’t.

    We need to take action.

    We have been given many chances and warnings from the earth itself, the earth is in self destruct mode and no one seems to care enough to save it! Children/young adults all seem to be taking action, more action than the adults of today are doing and even if adults claim they are it’s not making a significant change because at this rate no one knows if the younger generation will make it to adulthood. We have young activists speaking on behalf of my generation (the younger generation) because adults aren’t taking enough action themselves. Humans destroy everything they touch we are our biggest enemy and it isn’t fair that now the earth we live on is now consistently suffering. Children/young people have no say because we aren’t allowed in positions of authority, we aren’t allowed to speak our mind to the adults because we are taught only they are right. I know governments are claiming that they’re trying but they’re clearly not trying hard enough because look at the state of the earth. SO REALITY CHECK ADULTS, YOU HAVE THE MONEY, THE POWER AND THE AUTHORITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE SO TAKE IT! DO SOME GOOD IN THE WORLD, WHILST WE STILL HAVE A WORLD TO LIVE IN!
