Create a new Nobel Prize for the Fight Against Climate Change
On October 8th, 2018, the special UN Report on Climate Change was published with alarming forecasts, but it was quickly buried by the constant cycle of breaking news.
Coincidently, the same week the report was released, the Nobel Prizes were awarded.
In his will, Alfred Nobel specified that the prizes were awarded for work that was « for the greatest benefit to humankind ».
We believe that there is no greater benefit to mankind than to fight humanity’s most imminent threat: climate change.
That’s why through this petition we are asking the Board of the Nobel Foundation to consider the creation of a new Nobel Prize for the Fight Against Climate Change.
Decisive actions against climate change will be this century’s highest achievement. They deserve to be supported and honored with the highest distinction.
