Dear Future Me,

So far, this year’s average temperature is 64.8 degrees Fahrenheit! Winter still hasn’t ended yet! That is insane for St. Louis, Missouri. We have already had two severe storms from February 28 – March 6th. They both consisted of tornado touchdowns throughout Missouri. This doesn’t look good for this summer. We need to make a change. We need to slow down global warming by a lot to get back to a stable climate. There have been more hurricanes in 2016 than what I remember. Because of global warming caused by fossil fuels, the Earth gets hot because of the Carbon Dioxide build up in the atmosphere which causes the sun’s rays to get trapped inside Earth. Heat powers storms, so when the Earth heats up more and more, that causes more storms and powerful storms. Our world is in danger, we need to end climate change or we will cook like turkey in an oven. Let’s all work together to end climate change. I promise to keep the Earth clean and to plant more trees and switch to green energy. Let’s make a change!

Sincerely,

Aiden H
