Stop Nations From Outsourcing CO2 Emissions to China

China's Smog

Target: United Nations American Ambassador Susan E. Rice

Goal: Urge the United Nations and other government agencies to strictly regulate outsourcing to China in order to help slow global warming

There has always been controversy over outsourcing due to the lack of jobs in America, but there is another reason to be greatly concerned: global warming. While many of the wealthier nations such as the U.S. and U.K. have reduced their emissions, China’s emission rates are drastically increasing. This is due to the amount of outsourcing to China. Companies that do not want to be responsible for CO2 emissions have their products made in China where it is cheaper and less of the blame for global warming will be put on the wealthy companies.

Coal is still China’s main source of energy, and research has proven how detrimental coal is to the atmosphere. Even though CO2 emissions have dropped in nations such as the U.S. and the U.K., global emission rates are still dangerously high. Scientists have said that if the United Nations does not immediately take action, our earth will see peak climate change by 2020.

Every country in the world needs to start taking responsibility for themselves and start making efforts to drastically slow global warming. As one of the world’s powerhouses, America should take the initiative and propose new regulations for outsourcing to the United Nations committee. Sign the petition below to urge U.S. Ambassadors to take action against climate change.


Dear Ambassador Rice,

Global warming is a threat not only to our nation, but to the entire world. In order to drastically slow global warming, CO2 emissions need to be reduced worldwide. One way to do achieve this would be to regulate the amount of outsourcing to China. Although CO2 emissions in the U.S. have dropped as a result of outsourcing, global emissions as a whole are still high. It is not right for the U.S. to turn its back on these emissions just because it is not on our land.

Please make an effort to slow global warming by implementing regulations set forth by the United Nations to urge all countries to cut their emissions including the emissions created by outsourcing. Urge companies to take responsibility for their carbon footprint. This should not be regulated company by company or nation by nation. Drastic change needs to be taken globally and only the United Nations has the power to ensure that.

Take our earth’s well-being into consideration above those of large corporations. We should be focusing more attention on saving our planet rather than assigning blame.

    Don’t think that any form of pollution and/or it’s effects stays in one place. We are all affected, and it is time to have a conscience about everything we do.
