e-2219 (Climate change)

Initiated by Karunesh Saroya from Edmonton, Alberta

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons

  • Whereas the world currently is experiencing climate change which is only expected to worsen and this can lead to rising oceans, hotter weather, and the extinction of many species;
  • Currently, this issue has caused argument and debate in Canada, which has resulted in the delay of the Trans mountain pipeline and has hurt interprovincial relations;
  • This delay has also caused unemployment in Alberta, and a great deal of uncertainty;
  • While this occurs, climate change worsens, and the world’s weather turns severe;
  • A middle path solution must be created to reverse climate change as well as to continue economic growth, one that would give breathing room to allow a longer transition period to convert to alternative energy technologies while we not only reduce, but also reverse, the carbon footprint which we have left;
  • This would allow us to make an immediate difference in the fight against climate change as well as continued economic development; and
  • A worldwide effort would allow us to mitigate costs and be an achievable goal for other countries who struggle with being environmentally progressive while attaining economic development.
We, the undersigned, residents of the province of Alberta, call upon the House of Commons to begin a worldwide initiative to use technologies to capture carbon, thus reversing climate change.
