Dear Mr. Congressman, It has come to my attention, well not only my attention but many other people, that the planet’s global warming problem has become more and more serious over the years. Global warming is the average rising temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans. This increasing warming is caused by the in creasing concentrations of greenhouse gases.

It is relevant that Global Warming is happening in the world and I hope you realize why we must do something about it immediately. People don’t pay mind to it now thinking the consequences will come later on in life and they might not even be around to experience them, but the truth is we’re already living those consequences today. We also need to think about the future of Earth and try to prolong the life of it for future generations to come. They too have the right to enjoy the different things this world has to offer, and not helping to aid this is just selfish. We have only one Earth lets work on keeping it.
Sincerely, Diana Valencia
