Energy & Climate

My letter discusses the importance of preserving our environment and changes in the earth's climate.

Dear President,

I would like to congratulate you on winning one of the highest honors in the United States, the president. Though your presidential career has just begun, you have a difficult journey ahead of you trying to please both the American people and other countries abroad. One issue that is important to me personally is energy usage and the climate. I think that we must take precautionary actions to preserve the planet for future generations. As a country, we can not continue to strip the planet of its natural resources. We need to start to look towards a future of renewable energy because one day that may be all we have left. Increasing the production of fossil fuels and continuing drilling in the Arctic will only drag down the condition of the earth. The fact is, global warming is a real issue. The burning of fossil fuels is releasing gas emissions into the atmosphere. You cannot ignore the proceeding temperature rising at a rate that is unprecedented in the past 1,300 years. Additionally, I strongly believe the United States should abide by Paris Accords limiting global carbon emissions. Withdraw from this accords, will add more pollution to the already polluted atmosphere. I hope if you read this you might consider my viewpoint whether you agree or oppose it. 

Respectfully yours,

Hannah M.
