- U.S. Leaders
The Earth is already locked in to a 1.8 degrees global rise in temperature above pre-industrial times. Above a two degree rise, we are guaranteed far more calamitous weather events already evidenced by fires, flooding, wind, melting, Tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes and tornadoes.
These events are resulting in widespread damage and the death of many people as well as entire species.
Please sign to request that United States leaders take immediate and sustained action on this drastic climate emergency!
We, the People of the Earth, request that the United States President, Administration, Congress and other leaders establish immediate emergency management procedures to arrest the U.S. contribution to a runaway global temperature rise.
We request that U.S. leaders collaborate with other global leaders to establish a First Priority Climate Emergency status worldwide.
We strongly request that the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and former Vice President Al Gore be engaged immediately by U.S. leaders on a round-the-clock basis to propose effective strategies for maintaining a livable Earth.
The Climate Emergency First Priority! petition to U.S. Leaders was written by Cynthia O. Thomas and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
