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!

    Indeed Global Warming is a state of emergency. Here in Zambia (Africa) it is becoming hot to extremes, even cold seasons are no longer cold, most people used to have boreholes for as source of water but most wells are dry and people are really suffering. Global Warming is equal to no water, no vegetation, no energy, starvation, droughts e.t.c. Lets plant more trees and reduce on pollution.

    Man-made CO2 comprises 5% of total natural carbon emissions. Requires an additional to existing of 6 million sq km plus of dense forest just to balance and more to pull back say twice to three times

    We need to eliminate the use of fossil fuels and keep them in the ground, Cars need to be replaced urgently for there are beyond billions which means each car that runs emits co2 into our atmosphere and warms the planet up by every switch of the key, We need to forget about the things that come underneath the matter of climate change and focus purely on that, stop building house and start creating wildlife parks in their places, start to regrow the forests which once covered the majority of the planet before we killed them in making room for factories. Stop talking and start cutting these factories off start to eliminate the ways we once had, i don’t care about the risks the planet comes before the people for we wouldn’t exist without the planet.

    We can defeat GLOBAL WARMING in 5 years by using used oil tankers to take in sea water and convert it into fresh water, then freeze it into cargo cantainer sized, 50’Long x10tall and 10’wide, ice cubes. Each tanker produces 5,000 cargo container sized ice cubes per day. We will use heavy duty helicopters to carry the ice cubes to the glaciers . Imagine 25 used oil tankers 2 to 5 miles off the coast of Greenland’s glacier. We will place the ice cubes ,strategically, so that when the heavy winter weather roles in our ice cubes will trap the moisture and grow. This is very easy to achieve, and we’ll lower the ocean water tables by inches over the course of five years. The costs will be nominal because of the world wide contrabutions of money and equipment. Adding 125,000 cargo container sized ice cubes per day, to the Greenland glacier, for 50+ days, during the fall months will help us replenish the lost glacier ice. Also, we can use this technique to prevent wildfires from forming. By positioning used oil tankers off the coast of California, and on the Gulf. But we will freeze the ocean water into tree log sized ice cubes and place them in and around the dry, hot spots for wildfires. Say, 10,000 per day, tree logs sized ice cubes just melting. Providing much needed moisture in those targeted areas for wildfires. No more lost of life or property from wildfires ever again by using this technique. We will ship the tree logs sizes ice cubes by tractor trailer during the night time hours.
