Climate Change Is Closer to Home Than You Think. We Must Demand Action!


As we witness the ice of the Arctic melt away, a similar crisis unfolds closer to home, threatening the environmental balance and communities relying on North America's Great Lakes. Recent data from the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory reveals a stark reality: ice cover across these vital freshwater sources has plummeted to its lowest level in 50 years. This decline is a clear signal of the escalating climate crisis.


We must act now. Sign the petition to demand the EPA impose stricter limits on carbon emissions from industrial, agricultural, and transportation sectors!


The Great Lakes, holding nearly 20% of the Earth's unfrozen fresh surface water, are experiencing record high temperatures due to a combination of the El Niño effect and climate change driven by fossil fuel combustion. The implications are profound, from altering weather patterns across the northeastern US and southern Canada to shrinking snow seasons that communities and ecosystems depend on. Sign this petition to call for policies that safeguard our lakes, climate, and communities.
