Iowa Climate Strike started this petition to Iowa Governor

We demand that Iowa’s Governor Kim Reynolds to declare a climate emergency in Iowa. To do this we must have legislators and citizens alike pushing for a climate emergency. In Iowa we have already began to suffer from the effects of climate change. Just in the last year we’ve had two devastating floods and a deadly polar vortex. Our farmers are struggling to make ends meet and if this continues Iowa’s economy will suffer as well. Fight with us to tell Governor Reynolds we’re demanding that our lives are put at a higher value then any amount of money. We deserve to live long, happy lives that aren’t affected by climate change.

Our Demands:

  • emergency declared on climate change
  • no new energy plants that aren’t for renewable recourses (wind, solar, nuclear)
  • carbon neutral by 2050
  • education and curriculum on climate change and other environmental issues in schools
  • pass the energy innovation and carbon dividend act
