Stand Up for Climate Action!

Sign the Petition

With the announcement that Pres. Trump will pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement, we cannot sit silently by without taking action. It's now time to take stronger action here in Michigan. 

We invite you to sign this petition asking Michigan's Members of Congress and our Governor to become climate leaders now.

 

Dear Governor Snyder and Michigan Members of Congress,

Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the historic Paris Climate Agreement is a major setback in a U.S. transition to clean energy and our position as a global leader. Now more than ever, we urge you to stand up to President Trump’s misguided actions and be a climate leader by taking climate action.

The historic Paris Climate Agreement among nearly 200 nations commits each country to keep warming below 2 degrees Celsius, which is what scientists have determined is necessary to avoid the worst consequences and to maintain a stable climate.

The citizens of Michigan know that climate change is one of the most urgent issues of our time and that it affects everything – our health, our jobs, the future of our children, and Michigan’s natural environment. We need you to stand up for Michigan and speak out against Donald Trump’s reckless attacks on our future.

Also, now that it is so clear that our national leadership is backtracking our progress on climate, we look to you, our state and Congressional leaders, to do more to lead us towards a clean energy future. We urge you to enact stronger renewable energy policies, clean car standards, to put a price on carbon, and enact policies that create an environment where companies can thrive while transitioning us to lower carbon resources.

We urge you to stand up to President Trump’s harmful climate actions, become a climate leader, and do what is right for all Michiganders. We are living in a time where inaction on climate and remaining silent is unacceptable.

 

Add your name to show your support for the Paris Climate Agreement and climate action now.

US would stand alone

    This is no joke and Climate Change is a real threat to our civilization as it stands now. With the threat of drought, flooding, fires and a whole myriad of dangers associated with earths rising temperatures it’s time for each state to act and stand with the rest of the civilized world and become part of the Paris Accord. We must do everything we can to stem the tide of disaster waiting in the wings. Washington is totally out of their minds and it’s now up to the individual states and cities to step in and take up the slack. Let’s make Michigan a state we’d be proud to live in because we know that our state government is doing the right thing for the people and the planet.

    Make our planet great again!! It is deeply disappointing that President Trump has made the shortsighted decision to remove the United States from the hard-won, historic agreement between nearly 200 nations to work together for a livable planet. Now more than ever we need states and cities to lead on climate. Please SIGN OUR PETITION to urge Michigan leaders to step up and push back on Trump's anti science support::
