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!

    syed ahThe Great Halt

    The in-equilibrium of the earth definitely contributes to the slower downing rotation motion of earth. However its elliptical path on which it revolves round the sun will remain the same. One could find uncertain environment on earth. Most of the northern part of earth will be under total complete dark blanket. There will be no sunlight. This non availability of sunlight attracts more and more clouds in that area. The evaporation of ocean waters in the form of snow will be deposited in that area. That snow will never melts and will remain there and keep going on heaping. The sea level goes diminishing gradually, because a great portion of water will continuously depositing in the dark blanket area of the earth. With this continuous process of great depositions in the north pole, the earth finds its equilibrium by moving & tilting down ultimately go behind the sun permanently. The maximum sun light & energy moving from the sun to the part of earth will be from South Pole up to the equator. The temperature of one part of the earth will rise and the other part will drop. One part of earth from equator towards north will be having complete dark. And the other part from equator towards south will be having complete sun shine. Earth will still making its rotations, but these rotations will not shape the days and nights on earth. The earth will facing the sun from south pole. The water in the oceans will boil and the whole area would be under thick cloud. These clouds will be attracted in the colder region of the earth. The rotation movement of the earth will come under the force of vague magnetic attraction and repulsion of elliptical orbit of the sun on which the earth revolves around the sun. This un-even energy of repulsion and attraction will slower down the movement of the earth. Finally the rotation of earth comes to halt slowly. This great halt of the earth will lost its gravitational force. All the gravitational force will be discharged from the earth crust. The discharging of gravitation force will leads to the weightlessness on the earth. The gases and other things on earth will be escape out of the space and will never return back. The hard mass which is inside the earth will come out from the earth and will floats into the space. Oceans will dry and some water in the form of ice will remain on earth’s northern pole of dark blanket. The all other gases will escape from earth the earth crust will be exposed to the space the blue skies will be no more only the black skies of the space could be seen from the crust of the earth.

    The earth has already reached the threshold of 400ppm of CO2. It is now or never. The war has been on for long. If we don’t take any actions soon, it will be us on the losing side this time.

    Business competition between countries of the World! Which actually resulted to industrial establishment, that is introducing different form of environmental pollution into the Biosphere, Lithosphere and Atmosphere, immediate steps must be adopt to protect the Globe.

    Their should be a law that every citizen of various countries of the World should plant a tree in their Houses, Schools, Organizations of different form…..
