Dear future me,

I am writing to talk about a factor that affects weather. There are many factor that are causing climate change. One of them is rising sea levels. Sea levels are rising because of ice caps and glaciers melting. This is causing a problem to the cities that are located on the coastlines. They are in danger of going under. Another factor that is making climate change is greenhouse gas effects. Normally the carbon dioxide is something we need. It absorbs the sun’s radiation and keeps us warm. But since the industrial revolution we have been admitting high levels of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This causes more than normal amounts of the carbon dioxide to continue heating up earth instead of being released into space. This is a few of the reasons why climate change is happening.
