Level One - Step Two: Call it what it is. We are in a planet-wide global warming State of Emergency.10 your signatures
Because of the endless bad news that you are hearing in the media on escalating global warming and its consequent climate destabilization, it should not come as a complete shock that we are currently in an undeclared global state of climate emergency. It is now vital to have the world publicly declare that we are in such an emergency.
If you are uncertain in any way about either why it is critical to declare this emergency, or why all the urgency for this public declaration, click here. This document provides all the science and other reasons why this needs to happen now...
There are important reasons for a public declaration of a global warming state of emergency. Having this become a formal national and international declaration puts those in power on notice that they are responsible to begin allocating resources for resolving escalating global warming. It also puts those in power on notice that they are fully responsible for making and enforcing necessary new global warming reduction laws on a priority basis.
The following is Job One’s declaration of a global warming state of emergency. We ask you to read it, sign it, and then forward to everyone you know, particularly other nonprofit organizations concerned about the climate.
Sign the Petition to Declare a Formal 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 both individually and collectively to protect and preserve the ongoing evolution of life on Earth, including our future generations.
Based upon a preponderance of scientific evidence we recognize our global climate is rapidly warming and becoming increasingly unstable due to human-caused carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels. If we do not change course before global warming tipping points are crossed, this destabilization of our climate will continue to cause ever-increasing suffering and potentially irreversible devastation for both current and future generations. If left unresolved, it could cause the extinction, or near extinction, of the human species.
We further recognize that rapidly escalating global warming and its consequent climate destabilization is the greatest currently active threat to the security of all nations, comparable in scope of impact to global nuclear war. Escalating average global temperature rises will lead to destabilization affecting first millions, then billions of people forced to deal with ongoing climate catastrophes, food and other resource depletion, and mass migrations.
Nearly all of the major problems our world faces today worsen and multiply due to escalating global warming. All of the ecological, economic and political problems listed below will cross-intensify and therefore worsen as average global temperatures rises.
- Food and resource depletion
- Severe droughts, floods, and wildfires
- Rising sea levels
- Water pollution and water table loss
- Desertification and deforestation
- Ocean fish stock depletions
- Growing economic inequity, poverty, and instability
- Political instability and injustice
- War and regional conflicts
- Increasing potential of pandemics and other health crises
Despite 30 years of education, study, and discussion about the possible irreversible effects of human-caused carbon and methane pollution of our atmosphere, global warming temperatures have escalated to levels that may have already passed or be close to passing global warming tipping points with impacts that are irreversible. We must immediately reverse the continued rise of average global temperature by decreasing human-caused production of greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels.
Failure to resolve global warming for ourselves and future generations is simply not a survivable option.
As global citizens of every nation on Earth, we ask you, our national leaders, to initiate the necessary steps to formally declare a national and international global warming State of Emergency, calling for the immediate allocation of the needed research, resources, personnel, and interventions to quickly resolve this State of Emergency and sustainably protect, preserve, and advance the continued evolution of humanity and life on Earth.
