Climate change affects everyone, from babies to the elderly all over the world. Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our generation, the sea levels are rising, oceans are becoming warmer, habitats are being destroyed, and the world is getting warmer. Scientist predict that by 2100 some major cities will become unlivable due to sea levels, fatal heat waves, and unpredictable erratic weather. Some of these major cities include Dubai, Bejing, Shanghai, and Chicago.

If we allow the fossil fuel industries to continue to wield their financial power to exercise control over governments and politicians, it will only get worse. Your children and grandchildren are likely to live in a world in which devastating natural disasters occur often and the only living animals are those that humans made sure would not go extinct. Our future depends on what we do now.

It is not too late to do our part, to make a difference, and to fight for a better future. If everyone, individuals and businesses alike, are legally required to pay a tax on the greenhouse gases they put into the atmosphere they will be motivated to reduce the pollution they produce. We want the companies to start paying a carbon tax and leading the rest of our country and the world toward a future in which we can live in peace with the environment and no longer have to fear the effects of climate change. If we decide to not act we are setting up the world for our eventual destruction.
