Impose economic sanctions on the US if it withdraws from the COP21 Paris Climate Agreement


The scientific community agrees that if climate change--in particular global warming--isn't contained, all living things on earth will suffer massive loss of life and health in this century. If the United States, the leading greenhouse gas polluter on earth, goes back on its binding commitment to the COP21 Paris Agreement, it will have devastating consequences for life on earth.

We, the people of the United States, tried and failed to prevent Donald Trump--a climate change denier who calls climate change a "hoax"--from becoming President of the United States. While we will continue to take whatever action we can to force Donald Trump to keep the US government's commitment to COP21,  responsible international leaders have enormous power--economic, legal, and political--to prevent the United States from going back on its commitment.

To the international leaders addressed by this petition: Please know that we, the undersigned, fully support any actions you take to save the planet from irresponsible behavior by the US government. Even if your actions impose economic costs on American citizens, we will support you in any way we can. The survival of life on earth as we know it is too important to allow it to be jeopardized by Donald Trump.
