Our Global Supporters

Please use all means available, including the social networking buttons, to help awaken humanity to the urgent task at hand. To heed the World Scientists’ Warning we must alert a lot of people to the urgent need for change. Enough of us together can press governments, banks, and businesses to stop cashing in the habitability of Earth. Instead our leaders must promote health and sustainability within the limits of a biosphere protected and preserved for our children.
