To: President Donald Trump

Keep America in the Paris Accord on Climate Change.

Keep America in the Paris Accord on Climate Change.

“My parents and teachers have always taught me the importance of doing the right thing.

America is one of the wealthiest and most powerful countries in the world, so you should do the right thing too by keeping the USA with the 194 other countries around the world who have joined the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.”
Nevan Corcoran (aged 11)

Why is this important?

“Climate change is real! Every country on Earth must come together now to do whatever we can now to protect the future of our planet. The Paris Agreement on Climate change is a good deal for Planet Earth, including the USA. Please sign this petition to President Trump and share it.”
Nevan Corcoran (aged11)

This petition was started by Nevan Corcoran, an 11-year-old boy from Lusk, Co Dublin, Ireland, worried that America is planning to pull out of The Paris Agreement on climate change. Dermot Higgins, who was Nevan's teacher, is nearly finished a massive cycle around the world to highlight climate change and plans to deliver the petition to The White House.

How it will be delivered

Dermot hopes to deliver this petition, in person to The White House by St Patrick's Day, 17 March 2018.


Reasons for signing

  • The world has to act together to combat the effects of climate change. The most vulnerable communities in developing countries are feeling its effects the most, yet they make minimal contribution to CO2 production. Major polluters like the USA need to lead the way. There is hope if we act together.
  • Small changes in US economic policy toward renewables can drive massive environmental and quality of life benefits for US and global citizens.
  • It's a world worth saving! So important that we look after it, for us living the now and for future generations to come.
