Sign the petition
to the Deputy Minister of the Environment, Michał Kurtyka,
Plenipotentiary of the Government of the Republic of Poland for the presidency of COP24
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Poland, appeal
to you to make decisions during The COP24 Climate Summit
that will give us the chance to limit global warming
to 1.5°C in relation to the pre-industrial era.
We realize that global decisions require a consensus of states, but by accepting the COP presidency, the government has also assumed responsibility for the success of the negotiation process.
Only the slowdown of the average global temperature increase to 1.5 ° C gives us the minimum guarantee that the quality of human life and the world we know will be saved. Otherwise, droughts, floods, hurricanes, climate migrations and political conflicts await us. Also here, in Poland. We know that the current activities of the signatory countries lead us to warming by more than 3 ° C. *
We appeal for immediate action in Katowice resulting in:
The success of the above meeting depends on you, Mr President, and other representatives of the Polish political class. Do not let us down! Only 1 ° C separates us from the threat of extinction!
