Tell Congress: Rejoin the Paris Agreement

One of the first actions from the Trump administration was pulling out of the Paris Climate Accords -- a slap in the face of the American people. Now, with Democrats in the majority of the House, we have an opportunity to be proactive and pass a resolution to rejoin the Paris Agreement.  

Sign the petition today and ask Congress to reaffirm America’s leadership on climate.

Petition Text:

Demand that your representative cosponsor H.Res. 15 to rejoin the Paris Agreement!

I write today to urge you to support H.Res. 15 as a cosponsor. Our community and country’s future depend upon leaders like you recommitting the United States to true global leadership on climate. Rejoining the Paris Agreement will reestablish America’s role as part of a global community -- and H.Res. 15 will help keep climate as a top priority political issue in the run up to the November 2020 election.

    Earth is already in the midst of its sixth mass extinction episode. https://www.pnas.org/cgi/doi/10.1073/pnas.1704949114 The article concludes: “…Earth’s sixth mass extinction episode has proceeded further than most assume. … (T)he proximate causes of population extinctions (are): habitat conversion, climate disruption, overexploitation, toxification, species invasion, disease, and (potentially) large-scale nuclear war … (T)he ultimate drivers of those immediate causes of biotic destruction (are), namely, human overpopulation and continued population growth, and overconsumption, especially by the rich. … All signs point to ever more powerful assaults on biodiversity in the next two decades, painting a dismal picture of the future of life, including human life.”


    On October 8, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned there is only a dozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C, beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and heat-related deaths, poverty, water stress, food scarcity, forest fires, for hundreds of millions of people. Urgent, unprecedented, affordable and feasible changes within the laws of physics and chemistry are needed: reforestation, carbon capture and storage, and shifts to electric transport systems. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/oct/08/global-warming-must-not-exceed-


    On October 31, 2018, the journal Nature in “Quantification of ocean heat uptake from changes in atmospheric O2 and CO2” at https://www.nature.com/articles/s241586-018-0651-8 provides “an independent estimate” based “on high-precision O2 measurements dating back to 1991” that “the ocean-warming effect that led to the outgassing of O2 and CO2 can be isolated from the direct effects of anthropogenic emissions and CO2 sinks. … (O)cean warming is at the high end of previous estimates, with implications for policy-relevant measurements of the Earth response to climate change …”
