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.

    Please don’t take us backwards. Please don’t dismantle the EPA. Please halt these pipelines that put corporate profits ahead of native and human rights. Our children’s future and the future of our planet depend on it.

    Our entire world is affected by these radical extremist GOP/Trump massacre of ALL CLIMATE in their lust for short term profit which don’t benefit Americans at all as its sold to nations other than kept here in U.S. and there’s virtually 0 U.S. jobs as with both the KXL Pipeline AND the N.Dakota Pipeline jobs given to Canadians.

    I have a small radio program in Northern California, would love to host you guys for an hour to get this message out. I’ve hosted Dr. Guy McPherson and am begging Dr. Paul Beckwith to join me, would love to have you as our guests. Saturday mornings 9 am by phone. Let me know!! We have to get the message out, it is already too late, the methane clathrate gun is firing; if there is a solution, then now is the time and it must be global.

    Time to face it.

    It’s absolutely absurd to me that something like this even has to exist: a United States that is focused on reducing carbon emissions and pushing towards cleaner and more renewable energy should be the default.
