The Pledge To Mobilize

Climate change is causing immense human suffering and damage to the natural world. It threatens the collapse of civilization within this century. Confronting this crisis is the great moral imperative of our time.

I CALL ON THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT TO:

  1. Immediately commence a social and economic mobilization to restore a climate that is safe, stable, and supportive of human civilization. This heroic campaign shall be carried out on the scale of the American World War II home front mobilization, and will require hard work and shared sacrifice from all Americans.

  2. Reduce our country’s net greenhouse gas emissions 100 percent by 2025 and implement far-reaching measures to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.

  3. Enlist tens of millions of Americans in efforts to rapidly expand our carbon-neutral energy and agricultural systems, conduct groundbreaking research, and implement large-scale adaptation measures. As in WWII, full employment will be achieved.

  4. Conduct this mobilization in accordance with the Constitution and ensure that the essential needs of the civilian economy are met during this time of transition.

  5. Establish the following imperatives as our nation’s top foreign policy priorities: A 100 percent reduction of global net greenhouse gas emissions at wartime speed, and the deployment of comprehensive measures that remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere until a safe climate is restored.

I will enlist Americans from all walks of life in this campaign. If sitting politicians fail to mobilize, we will elect leaders with the courage and foresight to enact these demands.

I WILL:

  1. Vote for candidates — on every electoral level — who have signed the Pledge to Mobilize over those who have not.

  2. Devote time, money, or both to elected officials and candidates who have signed the Pledge.

  3. Mobilize my skills, resources, and networks to spread the truth of climate change and the hope of this movement to others. When I spread the Pledge to Mobilize, I will do so with respect, truth, focus and courage. 

Thus I pledge to mobilize, in defense of civilization and the natural world.

    We need to make the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy at both speed and scale — in every nation. I will require the mobilization of every citizen, every business, every policy-maker — in every nation. This is the great challenge of our time

    Climate Changes brought on by global warming actually threatens the ability of the planet to support human life as we know it. Like many others I’ve been warning people about this looming catastrophe for over a decade. That warning has mostly fallen on deaf ears.


    Corporate greed has effectively sown doubt into the public’s mind about the threat.

    We must all understand that nuclear power contributes to global warming on a daily basis by discharging trillions of gallons of hot water into waterways – lakes, rivers & oceans – all over our world . Nuclear power is dangerous, costly and filthy and must be understiood as a significant threat to life. #DontNukeTheClimate ~Myla Reson
