Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled
Climate change, the result of global warming, now threatens to cause catastrophic harm to the biosphere;
Canada has committed to keeping warming below 2°C;
Canada will not be able to meet that promise unless it moves quickly to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere;
Sufficient funding is crucial for initiatives that reduce current levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and that limit ongoing emissions;
The quantity, variety, and well-being of wildlife is compromised by climate change, and other factors such as pollution also lead to habitat destruction;
It is urgent that Canada seek to protect all natural habitat for wild animals and plants for future generations by increasing the land and water area allocated to them, and maintaining its natural integrity. This also requires an increased financial commitment; and
It is crucial that Canada find a way to finance its ongoing commitment to the nature and wildlife that is important to its national heritage.
We, the undersigned, Citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to create a new financial security, Nature Bonds, in order to fund the protection of 90% of Canada’s land and aquatic area as a permanent natural reserve, and a move to net-zero carbon by 2024.
