It's scientifically undeniable - climate change is real, and is already having very serious effects on our world. Experts' latest findings? Global warming could completely wipe out the emperor penguin in this century.
Emperor penguins rely on stable, unchanging ice to breed, raise babies, eat, and protect themselves from predators. If there is too much or too little ice, the penguins' lives are totally disrupted and their chances of survival plummet. The situation is so dire that, according to Stephanie Jenouvrier, a seabird ecologist, if global warming continues the same way it has been "the penguins will effectively be marching towards extinction over the next century."
The Paris Agreement was created in 2015 to control emissions and global warming. Scientists say that if the goals of the Paris Agreement are met, emperor penguins have a chance at survival.
But so far, not one major country is on track
to fulfill their promises. And President Trump has sworn to pull the United States from the agreement altogether.
The world population needs to reduce emissions and halt climate change soon or these penguins will disappear. But it's our governments that have the power to do so through leadership & policy.Sign now and tell the U.S. to re-enter the Paris Agreement and those countries that have signed to uphold their end of the bargain!
