SIGNING OF THE CLIMATE PACT  
APRIL 22ND, 2016

Climate change is the single greatest threat to a sustainable future but, at the same time, addressing the climate challenge presents a golden opportunity to promote prosperity, security and a brighter future for all.

— Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General, United Nations

Clean air, water, and a livable climate are inalienable human rights. And solving this crisis is not a question of politics it is a question of our own survival.

— Leonardo DiCaprio, U.N. Messenger of Peace for the Climate

Planet Earth — creation, the world in which civilization developed, the world with climate patterns that we know, and stable shorelines — is in imminent peril.

— Dr. James Hansen, Columbia University

TWEET YOUR LEADERS

In December of last year, world leaders heard the voices of millions of people whose lives are being disrupted by droughts, storms and rising sea levels. They created the historic Paris Agreement, which enables all countries to work together to keep global temperature rise below dangerous levels. Now they need to sign the agreement into law. Tweet your leader and urge them to sign on April 22.

Climate Heroes

In partnership with the Climate Heroes Project, we showcase individuals from all walks of life who are stepping up to the challenge of the climate crisis -- from entrepreneurs making solar power affordable for millions of people to nonprofit leaders educating rural communities about drought-tolerant agriculture; engineers developing new water catchment systems and conservationists protecting the ancient forests that help to maintain a balanced climate system.
