Sorry for the language, but one top scientist just warned that we are
all "f*cked" if global warming releases gigantic amounts of methane gas
from the arctic tundra. The UN knows this is one of several catastrophic
climate threats we're facing, and is bringing world leaders to New York
for a major summit on this global emergency.
Hundreds of thousands of us will take to the streets for the People’s
Climate March just before the summit. Let’s make sure that on that day
we deliver the largest Avaaz petition ever, for the only solution: mobilize the world to shift to 100% clean energy. Click to sign the petition below with one click and tell everyone:
Here's the petition:
To national, local, and international leaders:
Scientists warn us that climate change could accelerate beyond our
control, threatening our survival and everything we love. We call on you
to keep global temperature rise under the unacceptably dangerous level
of 2 degrees C, by phasing out carbon pollution to zero. To achieve
this, you must urgently forge realistic global, national and local
agreements, to rapidly shift our societies and economies to 100% clean
energy by 2050. Do this fairly, with support to the most vulnerable
among us. Our world is worth saving and now is our moment to act. But to
change everything, we need everyone. Join us.
Sign it with one click here:
Whether it's the 'arctic methane bomb', the rapid acidification of our oceans, or apocalyptic flooding, climate change is the biggest threat humanity is facing, and we need the biggest petition ever to meet it. If we make it massive, the number of us who sign will be read out to all leaders at the summit, published in hundreds of media articles, and be delivered by our marches worldwide.
100% clean energy is a realistic goal. Already, 20% of the
world's electricity comes from clean energy, and solar power is cheaper
than coal in many countries! We just need to get our leaders to agree to
put their foot on the accelerator.
We're gearing up for the largest climate mobilization in history on
September 21. Already hundreds of events are organised and hundreds of
thousands of people signed up. But the events are designed to deliver
our petition to decision makers. Let's make it the largest call to
action ever. Join now and tell everyone - sign the petition with one
We're all different, and beautifully diverse. But whoever and wherever we are, climate change threatens everything we love, and brings all of us together. Let's come together now.
Ricken, Danny, Lisa, Judy, Alex, Iain, and the rest of the Avaaz team
