Kids vs. U.S. Government & Big Oil: Adopt A Climate Recovery Plan Now

To be delivered to The Federal Courts, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

We Support Kids in their Lawsuit to Get the U.S. Government to Take Climate Change Seriously.
There are currently 6,228 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

This petition backs the 21 kids from across the U.S., ages 8-19, who have taken the U.S. government to federal court, demanding science-based action on climate change. Every person, regardless of age, race, gender or religion has the right to a clean environment and a safe future - and the U.S. government's continued acts that prevent meaningful climate recovery undermine that right.

When these kids spoke up, Big Oil companies like ExxonMobil, Shell, BP and Koch Industries got scared and through their trade associations joined the U.S. government in trying to stop the lawsuit.

Our children know that we can’t wait to achieve a binding climate justice deal. We stand with them in demanding that the U.S. government stop the continued permitting and subsidy of the fossil fuel industry and adopt a national science-based Climate Recovery Plan to bring atmospheric CO2 concentrations below 350 ppm by the year 2100.
