Success: U.S. Rejoins Paris Climate Accord

Target: Joe Biden, President of the United States

Goal: Support American allegiance to battling pollution and climate change.

Over five years ago, dozens of countries joined together in a pledge to combat the existential threat of climate change. The Paris Climate Accord represented a meaningful global effort to curb the carbon emissions fueling this world crisis. For the past several years, this vital initiative has lacked support and participation from the country responsible for the world’s highest output of greenhouse gas pollutants per capita: the United States. Entreaties like this ForceChange petition called on America’s leaders to honor pledges made by rejoining the plan. Now these calls to urgent action will come to fruition.

Newly inaugurated President Joe Biden signed over a dozen executive orders his first day in office. Chief among these orders is the United Sates’ re-commitment to the ambitious climate accord.  He set a goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions in America by 2050 and vowed he would “listen to and engage closely with the activists, including young people, who have continued to sound the alarm and demand change from those in power.” In addition to this needed initiative, President Biden promised: “I’ll immediately start working with my counterparts around the world to do all that we possibly can, including by convening the leaders of major economies for a climate summit within my first 100 days in office.”

Sign the petition below to praise America’s reentry in the fight against climate change.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Biden,

Through your words, you show recognition that climate change is the gravest challenge our world faces in the long-term. Through your actions of assembling an expert climate change team, focusing on green jobs creation, and elevating the role of lead science adviser to Cabinet level, you demonstrated a commitment to meeting the formative challenge head-on. Thank you for honoring this promise by rejoining the Paris Climate Accord on your first day.

Such an essential first step signals to the world that the United States is back in the business of environmental protection and global partnerships, not destruction and divisiveness. Please continue serving as an ambassador for the health of this nation and this world.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Hey Tiff, please tell us what is good for America in this decision made by the office stealer?????????????

  2. Thank you Mr. President. No matter what anyone says, this is a wise decision. Climate Change and its threat involves the entire world. A few countries can’t change things on their own. We all need to do our parts. The U.S. is a big Country and a big polluter. We need to halt climate disaster and make the world better for us, future generations and all creatures that share their world with us.
