Ottawa Climate Pledge

Background

The world’s scientists and governments agree that warming of the climate system is unequivocal and that human influence on the climate system is clear. They agree also that the problem comes primarily from fossil fuel emissions—that is, the burning of oil, gas and coal.

Prominent voices caution that without dramatic action to stop this warming the dangers are dire: the World Bank says there is “no certainty that adaptation to a 4°C [warmer] world is possible”; business consulting giant Price Waterhouse Coopers says that planning for such a world is about “societal survival”; and the Nobel Peace Prize committee says the climate crisis threatens “the basis of human life.”

We must act.

The Pledge:

"I pledge my name in support of a better tomorrow, one powered by clean energy. I demand action from our leaders to work on solutions to the climate crisis. I pledge to get involved. And I pledge to share this promise. By uniting my voice with my neighbours, we have the power to change our world."
