SIGN the Paris Climate Treaty

This petition had 206 supporters


In December 2015, leaders from around the world will meet in France for the "Paris 2015: getting a global agreement on climate change" summit. The deal must contain the following elements:

•ambitious action before and after 2020
•a strong legal framework and clear rules
•a central role for equity
•a long term approach
•public finance for adaptation and the low carbon transition
•a framework for action on deforestation and land use
•clear links to the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals

A strong deal will make a significant difference to the ability of individual
countries to tackle climate change. It will provide a clear signal to business, to guide investment toward low carbon outcomes. It will reduce the competitiveness impacts of national policies, and create a simpler, more predictable framework for companies operating in different countries.

It is critical that the US signs the treaty!

For many, climate change seems like a remote problem, but the reality is that it’s already affecting people, animals and places around the world. A change needs to be made.

Let this be the year in which economic growth and sustainability join hands. The year in which citizens and organizations divest from fossil fuels
and put their money into renewable energy solutions. The year that we utilize solutions for poverty eradication.

Yes it’s possible, but only in a world where all countries commit to a low carbon future. We’ve got the technology. All we need is the will. Sustainability is the answer to development the only answer. But it won’t
end with Earth Day. We need the movement to think ahead to Paris.

Political progress has been slow-moving to cut carbon emissions. With your help, world leaders will step up and finally pass a binding climate change treaty.

On Earth Day we will take a stand so that together, we can show the world a new direction. Urge Congress to fight for change. Make sure the US signs that treaty!! Sign the petition today!
