Via the Climate Reality Project:

Last December, 195 nations reached a landmark global agreement, known as the Paris Agreement, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and put us on the path to ending climate change. This historic deal marked a turning point for our movement, with countries putting aside their differences to work together to solve the greatest challenge we’ve ever faced and create a healthy, sustainable future for our planet.

And on April 22 – Earth Day – UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will host a signing ceremony in New York. The event is a chance to celebrate a new direction for the planet and for world leaders to show their country’s commitment to climate action.

Yet, despite overwhelming global support of the agreement, most world leaders have not committed to joining the ceremony and publicly stating their support for the Paris Agreement on Earth Day. This includes US President Obama and Chinese President Xi, who represent the world’s two largest emitters of greenhouse gases.

That’s why today we’re asking for your help. Add your name and demand world leaders join the Paris Agreement signing ceremony in New York on Earth Day. If these key leaders don’t take action, the agreement may be delayed or never officially go into effect.

ADD MY NAME

The ceremony is the next step to ensure world leaders live up to their promises in the Paris Agreement. It’s also how the world will begin to transition away from dirty fossil fuels on a massive scale and move towards clean, renewable energy.

Demand world leaders change the course of our planet’s future for the better and join the signing ceremony on Earth Day, April 22 in New York City. This is a pivotal moment in history – and the time to act is now.
