Unfortunately, while this country’s total emissions account for only 1% of the world’s total, its people and wildlife are forced to live with the damage caused by other nations. Demand climate action is taken immediately.

Incentivize Solar Panels to Fight Climate Change

Emissions from fossil fuels are one of the leading contributors to the global climate crisis. While solar panels exist as a renewable alternative, they are not commonly used. Demand solar panels be incentivized to reduce the environmental footprint.

Demand Research Institutions Help Preserve Biodiversity

The welfare of wild animals has long since taken a back seat in the research world. New York University has become one of the first institutions to launch a program that will study the impact of human activity and associated environmental changes on animals. Demand other research universities and institutes implement similar initiatives and dedicate resources to the biodiversity crisis.

Stop Inhumane and Environmentally Destructive Livestock Ranching

Cattle held on ranches not only are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, but they often are forced to live short and painful lives. Demand a stop to this inhumane and environmentally destructive business.

Reduce Food Waste By Feeding Livestock Unsellable Scraps

A massive amount of whole and partial food ends up in the landfill because people find it undesirable. Feeding these perfectly healthy scraps to livestock is one way to put this food to use. Demand leaders make moves towards zero waste.
