My Letter encouraging public officials to join an environmental pledge
Dear Elected Official,
It is no longer viewed as a myth but as a fact, climate change is real. Increasing levels of CO2 in our atmosphere caused by human activity is agreed on by 97% of scientist as the main reason for increasing global temperature.
It’s not only a matter of protecting our environment but also a matter of national security. Leading military personnel throughout the world have agreed that one of the largest threats to our society is climate change. When fields flood and when drought becomes more severe the world food supply will become sparse. This will lead to political unrest across the globe.
The United States was a key player in drafting the Paris Climate Agreement which had lofty but achievable goals to curb carbon emissions and help combat climate change. President Trump’s announcement that we would be leaving the Paris Agreement says to the world that it is not our problem to fix. However, as the largest contributor of CO2 into the atmosphere per capita, it is most definitely our problem and we should be involved in the resolution.
All over our nation, elected officials have joined together and have pledged to continue with The Paris Agreement to curb our carbon emissions.
My question is, have you?
Will you make the pledge, as many of your elected colleagues have, to save our earth and combat climate change? Do this not only for us but for our future, for our children and grandchildren. When they look back, will they see you on the right side of history in protecting our only planet?
It is time to join the pledge now, because 97% of scientists agree. It is no longer a partisan issues but a nonpartisan issue; it is a human issue.
As an elected official it is your duty to serve and protect your constituents. I encourage you to join the pledge and help curb our carbon footprint, help combat climate change, help save our environment.
