Petition to António Guterres, Secretary-General, António Guterres, United Nations

United Nations: BAN Trophy Hunting. STOP Poachers. END Imports.

Ban International Travel for Hunting. Ban importing/exporting animal parts. More than 7.752.005.873 (billion) humans on Earth.Two-thirds of all animal species are being wiped out.100,000 elephants killed in the last 3 years. Too many species with once robust populations now reduced to a few thousand, a few hundred or even less. Humans are rapidly destroying the natural world in a blood-soaked pursuit of greed, false-power, ego, ignorance and stupidity. We are witnessing The Great Animal Extinction, this animal holocaust caused entirely by soulless humans. Tigers, elephants, bears, rhinoceros, wolves, leopards, jaguars, cheetahs, gorillas, orangutans, so many bird species, sea life, are on the brink of extinction, and in a few years will be gone. The list is frighteningly long. Wild animals we love are being massacred at a terrifyingly rapid rate of destruction. Extinction is forever. EXTINCTION IS FOREVER!Natural habitat destruction, climate-change and greed are BIG problems, but the worst and most grotesque offenders are vile poachers and mentally diseased trophy hunters. These killers are an horrifying example of mental illness. Aided by slimy companies that profit from killing these beautiful creatures. These businesses & clubs are guilty of lobbying governments to let them break the law by importing exotic animals and their body parts and promoting death. They must be stopped right NOW! It's nearly too late. We must act right NOW or we will be living in a world devoid of nature. A dead planet.There is no time left to save the Earth's great land, air and sea creatures.  Actions taken by organizations and individuals have helped but are not enough to stop the massacre. You sir, Mr. Secretary General, and we, must all act today, we must tip the balance for the animals!  WE MUST BE THEIR PROTECTORS.What will the world look like if you/we do nothing? Please do something Mr. Secretary-General, we know you have the heart and courage to make changes happen in the world! ~ Please sign the petition and share it with everyone. It will be hand delivered to the United Nations. I thank you. The animals thank you. Mother Earth thanks you.

Petition to Donald J. Trump, United Nations, U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate

Tell Congress: Climate Change is an EMERGENCY

Climate change on the planet can be brought about by different exercises. At the point when environmental change happens; temperatures can expand drastically. At the point when the temperature rises, a wide range of changes can happen on Earth. For instance, it can result in more floods, dry seasons, or serious downpour, just as progressively visit and extreme warm waves. Seas and ice sheets have additionally encountered a few changes: seas are warming and ending up progressively acidic, icy masses are liquefying, and ocean levels are rising. As these progressions much of the time happen in future decades, they will probably introduce difficulties to our general public and condition. Scientists at the United Nations argue that the world has just over a decade to tackle climate change. Now, we need to move. The House passed legislation to combat climate change for the first time in a decade and created a Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.  Several presidential candidates call climate change a "crisis" and an "emergency" with more than a dozen supporters of a Democratic climate change debate and a Green New Deal championing.  This is our chance to send a message to Donald Trump, any Republican challenging the science and reality of climate change, and the whole world: We MUST step up to act because it's an existential threat, a national emergency, and we're running out of time!  ADD YOUR NAME: I believe that climate change is a planetary crisis and that Congress must declare it an emergency.

Petition to Dallas ISD Trustees

Call on Dallas ISD Trustees to Pass a Climate Action Resolution

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, Climate change poses threats to human health, safety, and security. Children are uniquely vulnerable to these threats. The effects of climate change on child health include physical and psychological harms of weather disasters, increased heat stress, decreased air quality, altered disease patterns of some climate-sensitive infections, and food, water, and nutrient insecurity in vulnerable regions. Poor air quality caused by pollution is directly linked to asthma in children. According to the Center for Disease Control, Asthma is one of the most common illness-related reasons that children miss school. When children miss school, their academic performance can slip, making students more vulnerable to falling behind in class. In an article from the Dallas Morning News, according to the Nature Conservancy, 9.5 percent of DISD’s enrolled students have asthma (the national average is 8.3 percent) and Dallas County leads the region for hospitalizations for childhood asthma. Sign our petition calling on Dallas ISD Trustees to pass a resolution enabling our district to appoint an Environmental and Climate Action Committee designed to review current practices and offer solutions to reduce emissions and other factors contributing to climate change. Read the most current version of the resolution here.
