Petition to Elizabeth Warren, Edward J. Markey

Hold ExxonMobil & Others Accountable for Crimes Against Humanity.

What would your 2030 self tell you today?  Will you congratulate yourself for not giving in to Climate Action or regret your inaction? ExxonMobil is banking on most people taking no action.  Infact, they are investing in psychological manipulation and political corruption to keep people from taking action. the greenhouse effect. In 1978 Exxon scientists confirmed that “there is general scientific agreement that the most likely manner in which mankind is influencing the global climate is through carbon dioxide release from the burning of fossil fuels.” They warned then that "man has a time window of five to ten years..." to make hard  decisions alternative means to meet people's energy consumption.  They also calculated the likely results of too much CO² released into the air via fossil fuels. Exxon’s scientists discussed how "the potential harm from climate change would compare with similar existential threats to human survival, such as a nuclear holocaust or world famine." Global temperature increaseSouthwest states would be hotter and drier The “flow of the Colorado River would diminish and the southwest water shortage would become much more acute" Most glaciers in the North Cascades and Glacier National Park would melt; Less snowpack would require a major increase in storage reservoir[m]arine life would be markedly changed,”   Salmon more difficult to catch The “rate of plant growth in the Pacific Northwest would increase,” vesting a tremendous redistribution of weight and pressure exerted on the earth’s crust” which could “trigger major increases in earthquakes and volcanic activity resulting in even more atmospheric CO2 and violent storms”; The “Arctic Ocean would be ice free for at least six months each year, causing major shifts in weather patterns in the northern hemisphere;” Yhe “present tropics” would be hotter and less habitable, but the “present [temperate]” latitude would be warmer and more habitable. What can you do?  Speak up! Numbers count!  Sign this petition to pass a Congressional Resolution to hold corporations and politicians that are cashing in on destroying Earth's climate and resources.  Those, like ExxonMobil,  are major contributors to the current Global Climate Change Crisis. They boast an ability to adapt to lower carbon emissions, not will not inless 'forced to' by economic conditions.  They can be held criminally liable under the Roman Statute. Let's pass this Resolution NOW while we still have those Represenatives in Congress who believe your life and future is more valuable than the profits made from controlling gas and oil supplies.

Use One Percent of Your Time Against Climate Change

Dear friend, Take your age and add 28. This will be your age in 2050. If you graduate today, you will be around 50. If you are more advanced in your career, you might be retired and hopefully still be healthy.  You will look back at your career and the time you spent doing all the things that matter to you, your family, and your community. How likely do you think our planet will be in a good shape in 2050? I don't know about you, but I am not very optimistic and the projections for temperature increases are not good. I am not optimistic because 2050 seems so far away.  According to Oxfam, "the carbon emissions of the richest one percent are more than double those of the three billion people who make up the poorest half of humanity." I prefer another one percent rule: I would like to invite everyone to spend one percent of their time every week thinking, helping, volunteering, and leading the fight against climate change. If you work say 50 hours a week, 1% is only 30 minutes of your time. If you can do more, even better. Put the 30 minutes in your calendar, block the time. Maybe on Friday in the afternoon when things are less busy or during lunchtime or during weekends. Or reduce your time on social media or streaming by 30 minutes and allocate it to climate change. I want to call this rule the #onepercentforclimatechange. What do you think? Will you sign and support this petition?
