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.

    I’ve read a lot about this and believe it is really really important to act now. Don’t be confused by the “Merchants of Doubt” (book and movie).

    To succeed in countering climate change, we need national action like our country took in World War II. Half measures will not come even close. Thank You for giving people an avenue for making it happen!

    If all these people are wrong and we act on climate change, worse case senario, we have muxh ckeaner air and lower cancer and respiratory disease rates. If we don’t act and all these people are right, humanity may face extinction. When the fate of the world hangs in the balance, why not err on the side of caution? Maurice

    Climate change is not just a matter of “extreme weather”. Climate change is leading us towards atmospheric changes that humans can’t survive— in our lifetimes. In our kids’ lifetimes. No one wants to hear it, but there it is. Humanity can be awesome and heroic right now, or we kiss our butts goodbye.
