Come with us to the doorsteps of those responsible for this crisis.

Climate impacts, already experienced by the world’s poorest, are today palpable across the planet. We’re facing extreme weather events, catastrophic loss of wildlife and a crisis over future access to freshwater and food.

Sign on and together - along with the millions of other everyday people who are also stepping up across the world - we’ll go to the doorsteps of those who are responsible and accountable for this climate crisis. Whether we’re stopping an oil rig from drilling for oil in Europe, closing a coal mine in Australia, telling car companies to stop producing cars which choke our cities, confronting the industries driving deforestation or calling out our global politicians for action not words, we’ll all go together.

Sign the open letter and join the fast-growing movement of people doing whatever it takes to force politicians, businesses, financiers and the media to recognise the climate crisis for what it is: an existential emergency that needs immediate action.

We're in a climate crisis. Act like it.

It is time to create a new and just global society that redesigns the way we interact with the environment and each other.

We say to all those with responsibility for this crisis - from the fossil fuel majors to the forest destroyers, and all those that bankroll them; to the politicians who have failed to take strong enough action - we hold you to account.

To those responsible and accountable for this climate crisis: I stand with 803,626 people, who are already calling for action in the face of the climate emergency, and say to you:

A global movement

People across the world are acting in the face of a Climate Emergency. The current number of global signers is...

Fossil Fuels

Fossil Fuels

The fossil fuel industry is the biggest driver of climate breakdown. Just 90 entities were responsible for 65% of industrial carbon emissions between 1751 and 2013. Alarmingly annual fossil fuel emissions are still rising. We need to phase out fossil fuel infrastructure faster and ensure a fair transition for those whose lives, livelihoods and jobs are on the line.

Forests

Forests

Deforestation is the second leading cause of global warming and produces about 24% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Big agrobusiness like the meat and soy industry as well as disastrous wildfires, like those in the Amazon, are causing tremendous loss. Losing forest means losing home, biodiversity, and resilience.

Oceans

Oceans

Carbon dioxide emissions are not just impacting our atmosphere. More than 40% of CO₂ emitted by people is absorbed by our oceans. When carbon dioxide dissolves in seawater, the water becomes more acidic. Acid oceans are fueling faster climate change. With so much biodiversity at stake we must act now.

Climate Strikes

Climate Strikes

Climate movements are rising to redirect politics from those which serve private profit and toxic industry, to policies for people and planet. This means respecting young people’s right to a future as well as holding to account those who systematically harm ecosystems, places and people. We need grassroots & indigenous led solutions for climate justice.

This petition unites the voices of Greenpeace campaigns working on the climate crisis – from petitions to call for a climate emergency to the movement to protect the rainforests, to the people rising up against the fossil fuel industry, to protecting our oceans. This petition represents the sum of our collective strength.
