"May Day! May Day!" - Declare a Climate Emergency

"May Day! May Day!" - Declare a Climate Emergency

Follow the lead of the Scottish Executive and the Welsh Assembly and declare a climate emergency.

Why is this important?

We have a decade left to avert a complete climate breakdown yet our emissions are still rising. To change this we need to first recognise and verbalise our current predicament: we are in a climate emergency. In itself, it is a small, symbolic step - but declaring a climate emergency is an effective way to engage the public sector, business and society in stepping up action to the level needed.


Reasons for signing

  • to highlight one of the greatest threats to our planet and mankind
  • I signed this petition because we need to take action and now. It's not too late.
  • We need to stop talking and start taking action, change must happen at the government and corporate level, individual citizens can't make a difference alone

We did it! A Climate Emergency Declaration was declared on Thursday. Now we need to hold politicians to it: no more exploration licenses. #keepitintheground
