Petition Clarksdale: Rejoin Paris Accord!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


The US left the Paris Accord on June 1, 2017. This embarrassment continues to smolder across the globe, along with smoldering forests and increasing rates of warming and carbon output. The 2018 US rate is greater than previously predicted. The polar caps are melting faster than predicted. Penguins, orcas and starfish are in dire straits, all God’s creatures are dangerously effected. We burn more fuel than any other nation except China, and yet we are the only ones not to sign the accord. You can join in on this fast to meet your own personal or religious purposes. Doing it together makes it more meaningful, both personally and communally. Besides hundreds of North Americans, We have friends from Argentina, Austria, England, Sweden, Japan, Australia and elsewhere around the globe who joined us last time we tried to petition Trump. Their countries had signed, but they joined our quest anyway because they believe in us N. Americans, and the atmosphere knows no boundaries.

We’ve decided that there is no way our president will ever go back on this, so we are re-focusing efforts locally and are going to instead petition our Clarksdale leaders to adopt the Paris Accord, and make its goals our goals: to reduce America's greenhouse gas emissions to 26% below 2005 levels by 2025.  (PS: We’re not alone in this —18 states and 160 cities have already committed, including nearby Nashville and Birmingham).  You can sign hard copy petition at Quapaw Canoe Company, and other locations in Clarksdale, MS.  Anyone can sign it, and we hope you all do in support of our effort.  Your positive input will have a beneficial effect.  Ultimately it will be those with Clarksdale or Coahoma County Zip Codes that count in this particular campaign.  But we need support!  Your signature will demonstrate the universal need!  We all breathe the same air and drink the same water.  We will be reporting on the effort here; maybe you will be inspired to do the same in your own community?

We at Quapaw Canoe Company are all about balance, in our canoes, in our work, in our lives. Let's regain balance and rejoin the Paris Accord…. If not nationwide, then town by town, and state by state,  Our Paddles Up and a Big River Blessing to you all!
