I need your signature on this petition to Joe Biden about the climate crisis:

The pandemic isn't the only crisis we're facing.

Just last year, we saw catastrophic wildfires, droughts, collapsing fisheries, and hurricanes that ripped communities apart.

You know what we'll face this year: Catastrophic wildfires, droughts, collapsing fisheries, and hurricanes that rip communities apart.

See the pattern? It's the climate crisis, and it's only getting worse the longer we ignore it.

I'm calling on President Biden to declare a climate emergency immediately.

Will you join me by signing a petition calling for an official declaration of a climate emergency?

Already, President Biden has canceled the Keystone XL pipeline, re-joined the Paris Climate Accord, halted drilling leases in the Arctic, and restored vehicle emissions standards.

That's great news, and we can do more.

By declaring a climate emergency, he will unlock additional executive powers that will allow him to act boldly.

If Donald Trump can declare an "emergency" to build his racist border wall, Joe Biden can declare a real emergency to mobilize our nation's industrial might to finance and build clean energy projects and create millions of jobs.

Let's show the president just how much this matters to our grassroots movement.

Please sign this petition and urge Joe Biden to declare a climate emergency right away.
