Sign the Petition to All World Leaders at the UN Climate Change Negotiations
(October 21, 2015) — This December, world leaders will meet in Paris to determine the future of our planet. We’re uniting voices around the world to deliver one simple message:
Take Climate Action Now
Zero global warming pollution. Zero extreme poverty.
Around the world, people from all walks of life are standing together to demand a strong climate agreement in Paris and a healthy future for the planet. When the world speaks with one voice, our leaders have to listen. So weâ€™ve put together this Open Letter with one very clear message:
DEAR WORLD LEADERS: TAKE CLIMATE ACTION NOW.
People from around the world are affected by climate change today — right now. And they’re calling out to world leaders to demand real action this year at the UN climate talks in Paris.
It’s not often leaders from 195 countries meet in the same room together, but that is exactly what will happen in Paris this December at the twenty-first Conference of the Parties (COP21) to the United Nations’ Framework Convention on Climate Change.
What’s the Goal of COP21?
For world leaders to create the strongest global agreement possible to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. That’s why we’re speaking out to them in this Open Letter.
The threat of climate change is real. We have the knowledge and the tools to create a world that runs on clean and low-carbon energy â€“ but that’s not enough. We need our leaders to take serious action.
When the world speaks with one voice, our leaders will have to listen. Join us in calling out to world leaders and demanding a strong agreement at COP21.
Join us in demanding that world leaders sign a strong agreement at the Paris climate negotiations in December. ADD Your Name.

We Need to Act on Climate Change
The overwhelming majority of the worldâ€™s climate scientists agree: man-made climate change is a reality. Unless we act now, temperatures will rise beyond our control.
There are real dangers
We’re looking at a future of seas climbing up our shores; devastating floods, droughts, and storms becoming more frequent facts of life; seasons changing beyond recognition; and dangerous consequences for our health weâ€™re only beginning to understand.
It’s our duty
We have a moral responsibility to each other and to our children to address this crisis. This is our one beautiful and deeply precious home.
We can solve climate change: We have the means
We know how to stop climate change, and we have the tools to do it. We start by ditching the dirty fossil fuels devastating our climate and our health and switching to clean, reliable, and affordable renewable energies like wind and solar.
It makes economic sense
Changing technology means renewables keep getting cheaper, more accessible, and more widespread everywhere from rooftops to power plants. Renewable energy costs the same or less than energy from fossil fuels. In 2014, numerous countries’ economies grew while their carbon emissions levels dropped.
We’re doing it together
Weâ€™re bringing together people from all walks of life and corners of the earth to support a strong climate agreement in Paris that puts us on the path to zero carbon emissions and the healthy and prosperous future we want. When the world speaks with one voice, our leaders have to listen.
