Sign the climate petition to save the world

Climate change red alert

Avaaz is heading up one of the most important petitions of our generation – the petition to save the world. Climate change is the greatest threat facing our world today–and we are almost out of time to stop it. Humankind has the technology to stop a climate catastrophe–but only with bold government action. Now it’s up to the world’s people to demand that their leaders listen to the scientists.

What can we do?

Avaaz is sending its global petition to national leaders around the world–along with personalized messages from citizens of every country on earth.

“Hundreds of thousands of us will take to the streets for the People’s Climate March just before the summit.” – Avaaz.org

Scientists warn us that climate change could accelerate beyond our control, threatening our survival and everything we love. One top scientist just warned that we are all in major trouble 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.

How you can help

Avaaz will be sending our messages to national, local and international leaders.

“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.”

Send your message that asks for a commitment to bold domestic efforts and a new international agreement to avert climate disaster and move the world economy away from carbon fuels.
