President Barack Obama's mission in Paris should be to join the world, not dominate it.
We demand that he make real climate changes.
The world is demanding that the United States dramatically reduce its emissions and pay climate debts to third-world victims of its obsessive production and consumption.
Please click here to sign this petition to be delivered in Paris:
We are calling on President Obama to announce in Paris (and return home to vigorously promote) these measures:
- The United States contribute $10 billion a year to the United Nations Green Climate Fund to help finance third-world transitions to cleaner fuel and to pay for "loss and damages" caused by U.S. and E.U. emissions since 1850.
- Reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions to 50 percent of 1990 levels by 2025 -- starting now.
After signing the petition, please forward this message to your friends. You can also share it from the webpage after taking the action yourself.
This work is only possible with your financial support. Please chip in $3 now.
