Dear Next President:
Dear Next President:
Hi! I am Mitchell, I am 13 years old and I go to Hudson middle school. I do swim team and in my free time I like to play sports with my friends. I am wanting to become president someday so this year I am watching every debate on TV and following the statistics on the 2016 Presidential Election.
An issue that I would like to discuss is Climate change and its effects. Everyday, all around the world people and life are being hurt because of global warming. One example of this is The Great Barrier reef. The Great Barrier Reef, one of the Australia's greatest tourist destinations now proclaimed dying because of pollution and human interactions with the reef. Due to a mass coral bleaching caused by global warming, the reef is almost completely dead white. Coral bleaching is when the algae in the coral that help it survive die because the warm sea due to global warming. The algae gives the coral color and when the algae dies it becomes white. This is important to me because I care about the environment. It is important to the world because the Great Barrier Reef is the largest entity in the world and that is just the beginning of the effects.
Another point I want to make is the melting ice caps. Peru’s Quelccaya ice cap is the only ice cap in the tropics and will be gone by 2100 due to global warming leaving the people that rely on the ice cap for drinking water and electricity in the dark. The melting will also cause massive migration of the animals who had habitats in the caps more south into civilian population. This is important to me because I care about animals habitats. This is important to the world because this is a serious issue that needs attention.
Yet another point I want to make is that Renewable energy should be used throughout the world. This is important to me because I see things on the news like: The Dead Barrier reef, the Melting Ice caps, and Global warming’s severe effects and it bothers me that some people think it is a scam by the government. It is important to the world because the greenhouse gas effect happens every day at a small but alarming rate which will build up over time and cause detrimental effects like the flooding of sea level towns due to rising sea levels. Another example is how Montana Glacier National Park only has 25 glaciers instead of the 150 it had in 1910.
