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!

    The S.W.S.S. IS A SYSTEM THAT TAKES THE VERY WORST OF SEVERE WEATHER AN EXTRACTS THE DANGER/RESOURCES, FLOODING IS MET AT 800FT.ABOVE GROUND AN PROCESSED,HAIL,HEAVY SNOW,THE SAME.REGIONAL PROCESSING OF DANGEROUS ELEMENTS TURNED INTO ENERGY. IN A SHORT EXPLANATION WHEN THE SUPERCELL SLAMS INTO THE SEVERE WEATHER SUPPRESSION SYSTEM THE 6MILE SQ. PLOT OF TORNDO ALLEY HAS 5 ATMOSPHERE INTAKE CENTERS THAT PULL THE WORST WEATHER UNDERGROUND AND SEPARATION OF THE DANGEROUS ELEMENTS ARE RESPONSIBLY WITHOUT LOSS OF LIFE ,WITHOUT PROPERTY DAMAGE,SURFACE WATER MANAGEMENT IS ACHIEVED. AND ENERGY IS THE BYPRODUCT OF A HUMANITARIAN ENDEAVOR. THIS SYSTEM IS NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT TURNING A PROFIT. SO I’VE DESIGNED THE REGIONAL LIFESAVING SYSTEM TO GENERATE ENERGY. THE FIRST AND FOREMOST REASON OF THE SEVERE WEATHER SUPPRESSION SYSTEM IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN A HUMANITARIAN ENDEAVOR. LETS PUT OFF THE GREAT WALL OF AMERICA /MEXICO FOR THE LIFE SAVING PROPERTIES OF THE SEVERE WEATHER SUPPRESSION SYSTEM? A HUMANITARIAN ENDEAVOR!

    Global warming which cause climate destabilization crisis need strong staps to be taken by all countries to resolve the crisis. United nations should put laws which will guid all countries to fight global warming and not each country to decide what to do.

    Mr. Trump has appointed a climate change denier and energy industry shill to head his EPA transition team. News reports say he is planning to accelerate steps to withdraw the U.S. from international agreements and treaties to check global warming. No action by the U.S. for the next four years will almost surely lead to the “four degree” increase in a few decades. Consequences will be terrible in total melting of the Arctic and most of the Antarctic shelf, rise in sea levels, global collapse of food crops, mass famine, inundation of two thirds of the world’s cities, destruction of the Amazon, etc.


    This is a greater danger to the world than the rise of Hitler’s Germany. Action has to be immediate and concerted to put pressure, locally, nationally, and internationally, to prevent what Mr. Trump and his advisers plan.

    We are running a global experiment by using our atmosphere as dumping ground, taking it to places it has not seen in a million years, while cutting down the rainforests, our ally in keeping it clean.

    Global warming and climate destabilization is no one’s agenda. It is raw fact supported by scientific evidence of escalating greenhouse gases. The changes we are already seeing is a portent of the awful things to come if we do not act now. If we wreck this?…there is no new neighborhood to move to!
