Dear Earth Day Canada friends,
There is a big push to support carbon reduction in 2015 leading up to the International Climate Conference in Paris in December. 2015 marks the mid-way point of the critical decade where, by 2020, we need to be on course to global emission reductions.
Earth Day Canada has devoted this issue of Earth Tones to the key things you can do to show you care about climate change.
We are asking people across the country to sign the 2015 Earth Flag, sign the Global Petition “Road to Paris”, and vote for candidates who care about the environment from all parties in the Federal Election this fall.
Last week in Toronto, the Ontario Government hosted the Climate Summit of the Americas which brought together over 300 leaders from government, business and civil society, with many more participating in events on the margins. One of the summit’s key achievements is a Climate Action Statement signed by Ontario and 22 other states and regions, signalling a growing Pan-American consensus on the urgency of fighting climate change ahead of the United Nations’ Climate Conference of the Parties.
It’s your turn to have your commitment recognized - sign the Earth Flag and be represented in Paris!
President, Earth Day Canada
