    I have been following for decades the developments / reports / assessments of our bleak future if human causes of global warming are not neutralized or greatly slowed. In particular, and regarding the Climaggedon Scenario Phase 5, I was surprised that there was no mention of the huge contribution to warming/climate change that is provided by the meat and dairy industries world-wide.

    The impact of the meat and dairy industries has been evaluated to be greater than all of the fuel burning transportation activities of mankind put together – cars, trucks, buses, trains, and planes. Reference the FAO report of 2006 entitled “Livestock’s Long Shadow”, and the book and Netflix video entitled “Cowspiracy”, and other books by the same authors. (Note: the lack of mention could be the result of multiple Ag-Gag laws in the country which make it illegal to publically criticize or otherwise report on negative aspects of the Agricultural industry’s impact on the environment)

    The relevance is that we humans could greatly influence our future to avoid the worst of Climaggedon by 2 fairly simple actions:

    1. Change our diet from animal protein based food to plant protein based food. Lucky for us there are plant based meat substitutes on the market today which are very satisfactory in terms of consistency and taste. (brands: Beyond, and Impossible. In stores countrywide) PS. This would also save our grainbelt states from running out of water in the next ten years or so.

    2. Cut back on our rate of reproduction to return to a sustainable level of population – something in the neighborhood of 2.5 million on the whole planet (as it was around 1935). This could be done by limiting the number of children per woman to say 1.5 or so. The 1 allows for a child and the 0.5 allows for the buying and selling of rights to have more than one.

  • signed Climate Change Emergency Petition 2019-06-23 22:23:33 -0700
    I am a retired Sanitary Engineer. I have voiced concerns ever since I read Limits to Growth in the 70’s. I would love any opportunity to assist your efforts. I have a PhD education, UC Berkeley and 45 years experience in many countries practicing W/WW planning, design, and implementation. I am also a pretty good technical editor in my field. I would not need a salary, but would need travel and accommodation covered for assignments away from home.


    In my view we need an immediate international tax equivalent to $5 to $10 per gallon of fuel on all carbon fuels. The money would go toward green energy projects. This tax would also greatly reduce the use of carbon fuels immediately. We probably also need a policy of one child per woman, with mandatory sterilisation thereafter. Women could be allowed to sell their right to the one child. Meat should also be taxed highly, and deforestation stopped in its tracks. Pesticides use must also be dramatically curtailed to prevent the mass extermination of insects needed for agriculture and nature in general. Nuclear power should be expanded preferentially as it seems to be the least environmentally damaging.

    Respectfully, Floyd Mitchell

    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!
