100% Clean Energy Can't Wait
To German Chancellor Angela Merkel and all G7 leaders:
Scientists warn us that climate change could accelerate beyond our control, threatening our survival and everything we love. We call on you to keep global temperature rise under the unacceptably dangerous level of 2 degrees C, by phasing out carbon pollution to zero. To achieve this, you must urgently forge realistic global, national and local agreements, to rapidly shift our societies and economies to 100% clean energy by 2050. Do this fairly, with support to the most vulnerable among us. Our world is worth saving and now is our moment to act. But to change everything, we need everyone. Join us.

We're days away from the G7 meeting where Germany’s Angela Merkel could settle for a deadly climate compromise -- that these rich countries wait until 2100 to get off fossil fuels. Even though they all know that only gives us a 66% chance of avoiding climate catastrophe!
Insiders say large public demand is what is missing most from the debate -- that’s why we need to raise a 3-million strong global outcry, inspiring the G7 to switch to 100% clean within a generation, not wait a century. Sign now.
