Sign the Petition to World Leaders: The Time for Action on Climate Change is Now

Last year’s startling United Nations report revealed that greenhouse gas emissions are still rising dangerously… despite repeated warnings from scientists that we have just a few years left to drastically reduce emissions if we want to avoid climate catastrophe.

As temperatures rise and natural disasters worsen, one thing is clear: Climate change is happening, and the time for action is now. The unprecedented bushfires in Australia have served as a wake-up call to just how devastating the impacts of climate change can be if left unchecked.

Enough is enough. Call for bold climate action from world leaders: Sign the global petition demanding they strengthen the Paris climate agreement, slash the use of climate-busting fossil fuels, promote economic justice, expand investments in clean energy technologies, and act immediately to solve the climate crisis.

Call for bold climate action from world leaders: Sign the global petition demanding immediate action to solve the climate crisis, slash climate-busting fossil fuels, promote economic justice, and expand clean energy.

Dear World Leaders:

As temperatures rise and natural disasters strengthen, there’s no doubt that the global climate change crisis is worsening — and a U.N. report published last year revealed that greenhouse gas emissions are still dangerously increasing. The unprecedented bushfires in Australia have served as a wake-up call to just how devastating the impacts of climate change can be if left unchecked.

We must tackle climate change to prevent any more environmental disasters. Therefore, we demand that world leaders act to:

  • Strengthen their Paris climate agreement targets by the end of 2020
  • Stop the extinction crisis that is leading to the dramatic loss of nature by protecting 30% of land and oceans by 2030
  • Speed up the just and equitable transition away from polluting fossil fuels and dramatically expand access to clean energy technologies
  • Protect people by making communities better able to withstand and defend against the environmental and health impacts of climate change
