November 28, 2018 National 350.org Letter
Last week, the US government tried to bury a major climate change report by releasing it the day after Thanksgiving. But its findings are too important to ignore: it confirms that climate inaction will lead to catastrophic consequences for our society and the global economy.1
To add insult to injury, Trump responded by attacking his own administration’s research, saying he “can’t believe” that climate change is a clear and present threat.2
Next week, world leaders will gather in Katowice, Poland for COP 24, the UN’s annual conference on climate change. No matter what Donald Trump believes, the science is clear, and we need governments everywhere to face the facts: fossil fuels must stay in the ground to avoid calamitous warming, and world leaders must deliver solutions that reflect this reality.
Sign the People’s Demands for Climate Justice to urge politicians from around the world who are attending COP 24 to commit to bold climate action.
Decades of deception from fossil fuel billionaires and the inaction of the policymakers in their pockets have created the climate crisis. Now, we’re running out of time to turn the tide. We need real leadership to keep warming below 1.5°C and urgently transition towards 100% renewable energy for all by keeping fossil fuels in the ground.
The People’s Demands is a bold plan created by people around the world whose communities are impacted by climate change. With our partners, we’ll deliver the demands and signatures to government delegates to urge them to take the necessary strong action to combat the scale of the climate crisis.
If hundreds of thousands of us sign these demands, we’ll create enough noise to force politicians to listen — so every signature makes a difference. Together we can make sure people-powered solutions take center stage at COP 24 — not more big polluter obstruction.
Add your name to the People’s Demands for Climate Justice.
The People’s Demands put forth common-sense, necessary solutions we need from world leaders to curb the climate crisis.
Climate disaster isn’t inevitable. The fossil fuel industry is a wealthy, formidable enemy; but together, we are powerful. We can still choose our future — and we can do so by taking action, today.
