This November 30, leaders from almost 200 countries around the world will gather together to address the existential threat that climate change poses to the human race during the COP28 climate summit. Pope Francis, King Charles III, and countless other high-ranking officials will all be present to show how important this issue is.
But one very important person will not be there. That person is U.S. President Joe Biden
.President Biden must change his mind and agree to attend the United Nations climate summit!
President Biden has said that he understands that climate change is "the ultimate threat to humanity," and claimed he would make tackling climate change a top priority for his administration. But where is his global leadership on this issue if he's not even present for this significant annual climate conference. In fact, he's not even sending Vice President Kamala Harris in his stead, either!
The summit provides a crucial platform for world leaders to collaborate, negotiate, and commit to more ambitious climate targets. This is all in order to save our Earth and ourselves from the implications of global warming, so it shouldn't be ignored!
On top of that, the United States is one of the world's largest economies and historically one of the largest contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions.
That means the U.S. carries a huge responsibility for tackling this problem and providing strong leadership.Given the urgency of the climate crisis, collective action must happen - and it must happen fast. The United States must be part of the solution, and to prove its commitment to the cause, President Biden must attend COP28! Sign the petition now!
