Dear Climate Change


Dear climate change,

I am writing this letter to persuade you to put a stop to climate change. Climate change is something that is troubling every single human on Earth. I have three reasons to why I think climate change is a bad idea: the hot temperatures will cause glaciers to melt and see levels will rise, droughts will start to occur and hurracanes will become stronger. Climate change is not a single issue but a number of serious issues. After reading this letter, I am sure you will understand the reasoning behind my thoughts.

My first rational to why I think climate change is not the best decision, is that the hot temperatures will cause ice glaciers to melt. If all the glaciers melt, it will make sea levels rise and there will be an increase in floods. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says we can expect the oceans to rise between 10 and 30 inches (26 to 77 centimeters) by 2100 with temperatures warming 1.5 °C. If the Greenland Ice Sheet melted, scientists estimate that sea level would rise about 6 meters (20 feet). Now that you have heard this valuable point, I hope you take this into account.

My second reason to why I think Climate change should stop, is that droughts will start to occur. Droughts in the Southwest and heat waves (periods of abnormally hot weather lasting days to weeks) everywhere are projected to become more intense, and cold waves less intense everywhere. Summer temperatures are projected to continue rising, and a reduction of soil moisture, which exacerbates heat waves, is projected for much of the western and central U.S. in summer. After hearing this vital suggestion, I am sure you will make the right choice.

My last point to why I think you should stop climate change is hurracanes will become stronger. he intensity, frequency and duration of North Atlantic hurricanes, as well as the frequency of the strongest (Category 4 and 5) hurricanes, have all increased since the early 1980s. The relative contributions of human and natural causes to these increases are still uncertain. Hurricane-associated storm intensity and rainfall rates are projected to increase as the climate continues to warm. Now that you have heard this important point, I am sure you will listen to my idea.

Climate change is something that is not alright. It may be everyones fault but it is up to you to help stop it. After reading this lettter, I am confident you will make the right decision.

Yours sincerely,
