Healthy Climate Alliance Announces Bold Goal – 300 ppm by 2050

SAN FRANCISCO, April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — We have a moral obligation to leave our children a healthy climate; We have the key technologies to achieve it: 300 parts per million of CO2Carbon dioxide (CO2) is emitted in several ways. Naturally through the carbon cycle and through human activities like the burning of fossil fuels. These human activities have increased CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere since the beginning of the industrial revolution and these high ... in the atmosphere by 2050.

We, as a society, have a moral obligation to leave our children a healthy climate, similar to what our grandparents had. We have the responsibility to develop and deploy the technology to cool the earth and remove the excess carbon from the atmosphere to restore our planet’s climate while we are reducing emissionsEmissions of greenhouse gases, greenhouse gas precursors, and aerosols associated with human activities, including the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, land-use changes, livestock, fertilisation, etc. (IPCC).

About the Healthy Climate Alliance

The Healthy Climate Alliance is a volunteer network of leading climate scientists, thought leaders, and political change makers. Initiated in April 2016 by Peter Fiekowsky, a physicist, entrepreneur, and futurist with thirty years of citizen advocacy for poverty and climate issues, our mission is to generate individual and political will around one simple idea: restore a healthy climate by 2050.  

This complements the existing goal of avoiding two degrees warming. Humanity has never before survived with more than 300 ppm of CO2. It would be immoral to plan for our children and grandchildren to live in that world. We must target 300 ppm, especially when we already have multiple technologies that each could deliver that result by 2050.

The goals of the Healthy Climate Alliance include:

  1. Initiate committed action on the part of political, scientific, financial and religious leaders.
  2. Initiate scientific research and reports on the best pathways to stop sea-level riseSea level can change, both globally and locally, due to (i) changes in the shape of the ocean basins, (ii) changes in the total mass of water and (iii) changes in water density. Factors leading to sea level rise under global warming include both increases in the total mass of water from the ..., stop permafrost melting, and restore normal weatherWeather refers to the state of the atmosphere with regard to temperature, cloudiness, rainfall, wind, and other meteorological conditions. (UKCIP) patterns.
  3. Informing and educating the public that this goal is possible and demanding that resources be allocated to fulfilling it.
  4. Inspiring others to commit to this initiative by signing the Declaration and becoming advocates.

“We are the first generation to feel the effect of climate changeClimate change is a lasting change in weather patterns over long periods of time. It can be a natural phenomena and and has occurred on Earth even before people inhabited it. Quite different is a current situation that is also referred to as climate change, anthropogenic climate change, or ... and the last generation who can do something about it.” — Barack Obama
