America Must Act on Climate Change

This petition had 310 supporters

Dear Mr Trump,

I am a 10-year-old girl from the UK and I am writing to you to speak up for the adults of the future. I, like many others, am likely to have as many years ahead of me as you have behind you. I have heard that you are expressing reluctance to honour the Paris treaty signed about the amount of CO2 released. I may be a child but it doesn't mean that I don't have a voice. Keep the treaty.

You have spent over a year thinking about the one day when the people of the USA would vote. Now it is time for you to look to the future and to your long term legacy.

Global warming is happening. Climate scientists all agree about this. There is no escape. We, the children of the world and those who care about them, look to YOU for help. America is one of the countries which produces the most CO2 and we don't want the amount to grow again. If you spoil the world, you spoil our lives, even yours and your descendants'. You are actually putting the future of the whole world in serious danger of global warming. 

Which president would you rather be remembered as? The President who destroyed the world or the President who saved the world? Everyone's future depends on your choice. Keep the treaty.

Yours sincerely,

Henrietta Watson
