Because I understand the urgency of resolving the global warming and climate change emergency, I make the following simple 3 part pledge.
This 3 part pledge will ignite, empower, and mobilize my actions.
I will become an active part of the global warming and climate change solution by working effectively to help slow, lessen, and eventually end the global warming emergency.
I will do my part to educate my friends and others about the global warming and climate change emergency. This included informing them about both the consequences and solutions.
I will stay the course until we do end the global warming and climate change emergency and set new global laws and policies in place so that it never occurs again!
Why making this personal pledge is important
1. Because the following is what we are now dealing with in the climate change and global warming emergency:
b. If we pass beyond global warming extinction-triggering tipping points, it will be because the forces of nature (the systems and subsystems of our climate, atmosphere, and ecosystems) have seized control from us because of the immutable laws of physics relating to the fossil fuel carbon pollution of our atmosphere.
c. If we fail to meet the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and pass beyond the extinction-triggering tipping points within decades, there will be an unavoidable mass human die-off (as much as 70-90% of humanity.)
d. If we get our governments to act immediately to achieve the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets using the effective fossil fuel reduction steps (described here,) we still have time to save ourselves and thrive!
e. Global warming is the greatest disruptor and ultimate threat multiplier for our other 12 most critical global challenges of the 21st century. If we allow global warming to go out of our control by missing the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, there is little to no hope we can control the massive consequences of the 12 other critical global challenges.
The above is all you have to remember about global warming and your future. Many of the pages on our website will show you the exact science behind these five simple statements to verify what we are saying is true.
2. Making the above global warming pledge will change your life for the better. It will also release potentials and opportunities that simply would not have appeared had you not made this pledge and committed to putting it into action.
The Gallup Poll reports show 87% to 70% of workers feel disconnected from meaningful and purposeful work—a true calling in life. Resolving global warming and climate change is this century’s and humanity's most meaningful challenge and work.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings, and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
