Thank you for recently reinforcing that climate change and sea level rise is real -- and no joking matter.

Following our recent summer of extreme weather, a new report released by the University of Colorado's National Snow and Ice Data Center confirms the frightening trend of rapidly melting ice in the Arctic. 

Predictions indicate the ice cap will shrink to a new record-breaking low -- and the record rise in temperature in the Arctic region could lead to changes in climate patterns that will affect the entire planet. We count on the Arctic ice cap to help regulate our global climate, as it reflects light and helps keep the ocean from overheating. 

Still, your Department of Interior gave Shell approval to start work on their plans to drill in the Arctic, which further endangers the fragile ecosystem of the Arctic.

To make matters worse, the Greenland ice shelf is melting at increasing rates, causing sea levels to rise. 

If we take climate change and rising sea levels seriously, we need to continue to invest in clean energy like solar, increase energy efficiency, and make reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. We will create more green jobs, more resilient cities, and a more robust economy as a result.

Thank you for continuing your commitment to action on sea level rise and climate change. We ask you and your administration to redouble your efforts.

      Face it, we are just renting our space on Earth for the brief time we exist. And like bad tenants, there are consequences and penalties to pay if we treat it irresponsibly. Earth has given us plenty of warnings, but unheeded, we'll likely be receiving an eviction notice soon. Where will we go then?

      This is something that should have been addressed 50 years ago. Please move forward on climate change legislation and promote greener ways of living now!!!
