Ten million Facebook users against climate change: Initiative CLIMATE VOTE PROJECT is gearing up for the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in South Africa!

On Monday, at 1:00 p.m. CET, CLIMATE VOTE PROJECT, the initiative to slow the pace of global warming, was kicked off with the launch of the homepage

The purpose of the German initiative is to challenge worldwide governments at the UN Climate Conference (COP 17 - CMP 7) in Durban from 28 Nov. to 9 Dec. 2011 in order to set the course for the conclusion of a comprehensive, legally binding climate protection agreement for the time after 2012. This request should be submitted personally on November 29, 2011 to the government leaders who are participating in Durban, in particular, the USA and China. Ten million Facebook users are expected to add weight and consequences to this appeal and to increase the pressure on people in responsible positions.

Just a few days ago, the initiative was able to win over Prof. Dr. Mojib Latif, one of the most renowned German climate scientists and contributing author of the two very latest IPCC Reports, as an official climate ambassador for this project."Climate change is continuing immediately and rapidly. 

Despite various efforts on the part of industrial nations, world-wide CO2 emissions have not decreased - on the contrary. In 2010, worldwide CO2 emissions hit a new record. That is why we are demanding that governments - especially the leading industrial countries - conclude and implement, as quickly as possible, more substantial and advanced measures towards CO2 reduction," said Sven Lilienström, spokesperson of the Initiative CLIMATE VOTE PROJECT.

Starting immediately, all Facebook users can support the campaign by just clicking the "Like" button.


The CLIMATE VOTE PROJECT is a non-governmental and privately organized initiative that was founded in Germany in the summer of 2011. 

The CLIMATE VOTE PROJECT does not represent any type of economic interests whatsoever. On the one hand, the objective of the campaign is to make people more aware of the controversial debate on the issue of climate change and on the other hand, it aims to substantially intensify the pressure on the governments in charge and to demand stronger efforts to reduce the global emission of CO2.
