Global warming is hurting us! Humans NEED to limit and reverse the negative effects global warming has on our Earth.

Many of these negative effects have already created issues that need to be solved. Some of these negative effects include the acidification of oceans, more severe weather, the melting of glaciers, agricultural damage, and rising sea levels. These effect practically everyone and everything. Certain food chains knocked off balance, animals are hurt, famines sparked, forest fires are more likely, cities destroyed and the economy could potentially fall. All of these problems create more problems.

There are many solutions to the countless issues global warming causes. One of the solutions that would be very effective is switching to cleaner energy. The more we limit the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere, the more we can stop these terrible things from happening. And we can limit released carbon dioxide by switching to clean energy.  According to css.umich.edu, “About 80% of the nation's energy comes from fossil fuels...11.4% from renewable sources.” If we switched to energies like solar, wind, geothermal and hydro, rising temperatures would most likely begin to fall. Some might say renewable energy is not cost effective, but “wind power was 71% cheaper in 2020 than in 2009 and the cost of solar energy dropped by 90%.”

We can do this and by signing this petiton, YOU could be apart of the change. Help stop global warming!!
