Despite being one of the largest contributors to climate change for well over a century, the United States is failing to give the money it promised to developing nations who are dealing with the worst climate impacts. There is no excuse for the richest nation in the world to fail to meet basic, bare minimum climate agreements!
Sign now to demand the Congress increase the funding dedicated to developing countries who are suffering the worst climate impacts!
President Biden promised almost 12 billion dollars to support poorer, developing nations in their climate response. To be clear, this the least the United States can do, given that many of these countries have virtually no environmental or carbon footprint compared to the U.S. Yet the Senate just approved a package that dedicated less than 1 billion dollars towards its pledged climate spending for developing nations.
For the past several years, the U.S. has been responsible for roughly 11% of global carbon emissions. To put that into perspective, the entire region of Sub-Saharan Africa -- which makes up a much larger percentage of the global population than the United States -- produces only 3% of emissions.
Sign the petition now to tell Congress: we must be accountable for our environmental impacts and support developing nations in the fight against climate impacts! Increase the amount of assistance given to those countries before the spending bill is passed!
