38Dianne Lukes signed the climate Pledge. Will you?
- Jul 10, 2007I just added my name to the Avaaz climate pledge, a commitment to 7 simple steps we can all take to help end the climate crisis. After the Live Earth concerts, hundreds of thousands of people are signing this pledge -- a growing global movement to save ourselves and our planet.
Please sign it at this link, then ask seven friends to add their names as well:
1.To demand that my country join an international treaty within the next 2 years that cuts global warming pollution by 90% in developed countries and by more than half worldwide in time for the next generation to inherit a healthy earth;
2.To take personal action to help solve the climate crisis by reducing my own CO2 pollution as much as I can and offsetting the rest to become "carbon neutral;"
3.To fight for a moratorium on the construction of any new generating facility that burns coal without the capacity to safely trap and store the CO2;
4.To work for a dramatic increase in the energy efficiency of my home, workplace, school, place of worship, and means of transportation;
5.To fight for laws and policies that
expand the use of renewable energy sources and reduce dependence on oil and coal;
6.To plant new trees and to join with others in preserving and protecting forests; and,
7.To buy from businesses and support leaders who share my commitment to solving the climate crisis and building a sustainable, just, and prosperous world for the 21st century.
