This petition is extremely important and I urge all of you to support and share it as far as possible.
This cause is essential to our Planet because it concerns climate change: a problem that is bound to destroy the human race and cause havoc all over the world unless it is urgently addressed.
The world is heated up with figures that were not even imagined a few decades ago.
The average global surface temperature has increased by over 2 °C each year.
The world’s leaders have attended numerous climate change summits, but have failed miserably in trying to put on paper a document that will propose concrete solutions to bring the rising of global temperatures under 2 °C per annum.
Pope Francis has been extremely vocal about the importance of action on climate change. During his recent visits to Cuba, Mexico and, most importantly, to the United States, the Pope has acknowledged that the rising sea levels constitute a major threat to coastal communities all over the world. Droughts are likely to devastate crops and with extreme weather set to kick in, millions of lives are in danger. The entire planet is at risk.
The subject of climate change was also tackled by famous actor Leonardo DiCaprio during his acceptance speech for his first Oscar win in 2016. Well-known entrepreneurs such as Bill Gates have announced they are planning to donate millions of dollars for research purposes and try to fight the global warming.
Meanwhile, there are critics that oppose any action on climate change. For instance, the Republican members of the US Congress feel that climate change does not pose any threat on Earth’s future. Conservative groups such as Heartland Institute have taking a stand against Pope Francis, claiming that the Pope has no business in trying to get involved in such problems.
I am asking everyone out there to open their eyes and support Pope Francis on this crucial issue. Failure to act will mean that this Planet will experience a grim fate, far sooner that everyone thought it will.
Together we can save Earth and all its inhabitants. The Pope was sent by God to try and save what is left to be saved. We must have faith in the Pope and support him with all of our hearts.
Please sign and let the Pope know he is not alone in these superb efforts to stop the devastating effects of climate change.
