Global Difference started this petition to Fremont city council

We are The Global Difference, a group of youth climate activists in Fremont, CA. 

Our generation is facing the toughest crisis mankind has ever faced: climate change. Climate change is causing devastating effects all over the world and is threatening to take our only planet away from us.

In the past 100 years, sea levels have risen 8 inches due to enormous glaciers, such as the Thwaites, melting in the Arctic. Furthermore, the Woolsey and Campfire forest fires left 88 people killed, and all of California in smoke. 

The climate crisis is a huge issue and we are running out of time. 

The Green New Deal is exactly what it will take for the United States to get to 0 fossil fuel emissions by 2030, and end the climate crisis. Written by representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it hopes to change America's society and economy in order to make it sustainable, healthy, and just. It ensures a safer, less polluted planet, education, wage, vacation, medical, and retirement security for all Americans.

It is also supported by other senators and representatives all over the US, such as Kamala Harris. She once said, "I care about the environment, not because I have any particular desire to hug a tree but I have a strong desire to hug a healthy baby." Please read more about the Green New Deal here.

We are working with the support of iMatter YouthThe Sunrise Movement and people around the world to ask you, Fremont City Council, to:

  1. Support our resolution: Our Resolution
  2. Join us, and millions of others, in our aim to stop the global climate crisis!

After seeing the devastating effects of climate change in California, and all over the world, we believe a huge change is necessary. Please sign this petition if you support our cause! For the sake of Earth, our home.
