On December 12, 2015, the world took a giant step forward in the fight against climate change with the Paris Agreement. Nearly 200 countries came together to reduce global warming pollution, fight climate change, and protect our common home.
This is a turning point for our movement, and it wouldn’t have been possible without environmentalists like you. But it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Big Polluter allies like Senator Mitch McConnell are already trying to block the Paris Agreement and climate action in any way that they can. If they succeed, it could be game over.
That’s why we need to show more support than we ever have for global climate action. Sign your name today to become an official co-signer of the Paris Agreement. With your support, we can stop Big Polluter allies from standing in the way of climate action, and we can make lasting progress in the fight.
I am a citizen co-sponsor of the Paris Agreement to fight climate change
I support the Paris Agreement, which:
- Sets a goal of keeping warming well below 2 degrees Celsius and for the first time agrees to pursue efforts to limit the increase in temperatures to 1.5 degrees Celsius. It also acknowledges that in order to meet that target, countries should aim to peak greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible.- Establishes a universal approach for all countries. It directs all parties to prepare, communicate, and maintain successive and ambitious nationally determined climate targets. - Increases ambition over time. Under the Agreement, all countries will communicate their climate targets every five years, starting in 2020. Each target should reflect progress from the prior one, reflecting the highest possible ambition that each country can achieve. - Sets up a robust transparency system that ensures all countries will be held accountable for their commitments and report on their progress.- Encourages clean energy growth. The Agreement helps significantly scale up energy investments over the coming years -- investments that will accelerate cost reductions for renewable energy and other low-carbon solutions.
Sincerely, [Your Name]
