Petition to Stop Climate Change

I don’t post every petition I come across
on here but this one is from a solid organization and it looks
like it has some potential to at least get a legitimate hearing from
top decision makers. So why not add your name to support this message?


Dear friend,

This
Thursday, the environment ministers from the G8, the world’s biggest
contributors to climate change, will be meeting in Germany. The outcome
of this meeting is crucial to world’s response to global warming.

Avaaz.org
has been invited to attend this meeting to present our climate change
petition. A strong voice for action could help set the agenda for the
G8. To help seize this opportunity, click below:

The G8 is a summit of world leaders from the “Group of 8?
largest economies. Together, these countries account for 50% of global
greenhouse gas emissions–the gasses that cause climate change. The full
G8 summit is coming in June, but the agenda and outcome of this type of
high-profile event is usually set far in advance–at meetings like the
one this Thursday.

This year, the president of the G8 is
German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Her environment minister, Sigmar
Gabriel, is in charge of the ministers meeting Thursday. And at 4 pm on
March 15th, we have a personal meeting with Mr. Gabriel to present our
petition for binding emissions targets to stop catastrophic climate
change.

Merkel has indicated an interest in making climate
change a top priority. With a significant global petition, we can make
the case that the world is ready for aggressive leadership on climate
change–and pave the way for truly historic commitments at the G8 summit
this June.

It’s a rare opportunity to have a global impact. Add your voice to the petition now:

50,000
people from 131 countries have already demanded action. Our goal is to
reach 100,000. Please sign the petition, forward this email to friends
and family, and post the link on your blog–we only have a few days to
make this statement count.

If we add our voices together, now, 2007 can become the year we took the first step to save the world.

With hope,

Ricken, David, Iain, Lee-Sean, Galit, Graziela, and the rest of the Avaaz.org team
