Climate change is affecting every living thing, every minute of every day. It has caused the death of humans, extinction of animals, loss of homes and properties, and loss of land itself. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, did a report on rising earth temperatures. "The planet's average surface temperature has risen about 2.0 degrees Fahrenheit (1.1 degrees Celsius) since the late 19th century, a change driven largely by increased carbon dioxide and other human-made emissions into the atmosphere." I am 13 years old and I do not and my loved ones do not want to grow up in a world where climate change is a threat to our everyday lives. Your choices can make a difference.You can reduce your carbon footprint in many ways. In case you can't come up with one, I have some examples of things you can do. It is very easy and will save the environment.
1. Turn off lights, TVs, and computers when you are not using them.
2. Walk or ride your bike instead of taking a car everywhere. Even a 2-mile car trip puts 2 pounds of CO2 into the atmosphere!
3. Turn down the thermostat on the heating when it's cold. Sweaters, blankets, and socks are good for you and better for the planet.
4. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
5. Buy locally sourced, organic, plant-based, unprocessed foods from local farmers, farmers markets, green restaurants and health food stores. Minimize food waste.
Thank you for your help in saving the environment! It means so much to me!
