We are proud to partner with Climate Mobilization Project to declare a Climate Emergency

The goal of the Climate Emergency Campaign is to compel governments to adopt an emergency response to climate change and the broader ecological crisis.

When Climate Mobilization Project was founded at the People’s Climate March in 2014, there was no climate group publicly organizing around the need for WWII-scale emergency action on climate.  The Climate Mobilization Project Climate Emergency Campaign has spread globally and is now being championed by leading climate groups including Elders Climate Action and hundreds of local governments that have declared Climate Emergency. The #ClimateEmergency movement has won over 1000 declarations so far.

Entering emergency mode is the critical first step to launching the comprehensive mobilization required to rescue and rebuild civilization.

Climate Mobilization Core Demands

    • A declaration of a national Climate Emergency

    • A decade or shorter mobilization to zero greenhouse gas emissions for the entire economy (including electricity, transportation, industry, buildings, agriculture, and waste)

    • The mobilization to safe-climate economy must be a democratic, equitable and just transition for workers and frontline communities.

    • Setting a goal of rapidly restoring a safe climate, meaning returning global average temperatures to 0°C warming above pre-industrial levels (not 1.5°C, which is unsafe) as soon as possible

    • Implementing a massive, safe, and ecologically beneficial “drawdown” effort to remove all the excess warming gases from the atmosphere

    • The use of World War II–type policy instruments to transform the economy on an emergency basis, including a substantially increased federal government role in planning and steering industrial investment, providing jobs, allocating energy and materials, and managing demand

    • Parallel efforts to rapidly address the broader ecological crisis caused by the global economy’s overshoot of environmental limits
