What Politicians Think of Climate Change
Today’s politicians need to open their eyes and stop worrying about how much money is in their bank accounts. In the article, “Climate Change Denialists in Charge,” we learn what multiple influencers think about the warming of our country. They are outrageous for not believing that the temperatures are rising. Not only are the carbon levels the highest they’ve been in years but nothing is being done about it because men like Stephen Bannon are persuading the President to pull out from the Paris agreement to decrease carbon pollution.
As a teen in this generation it is hard to watch people with power sit back and do nothing to save the environment. With the way the climate is increasing it will eventually lead to an increase in the weather such as droughts, fires, flooding and more which will slowly destroy resources and damage ecosystems. Although the California Wildfires were started by people, their massive outcomes are from the warm air taking all the moisture out of plants leaving them more flammable. The businessmen of today need to start taking action before it is too late.
The rising temperature will affect the length of the seasons, increase intensity for hurricanes, bring more drought and heat waves, and more if nothing is done to stop it. The first action that should be taken is acknowledgement by the politicians. They should move forward with laws to decrease the greenhouse gases which are making the carbon levels rise. The future generations do not deserve to be brought into a world with the burden of having to watch their carbon footprint because the people before them let climate change become irreversible. The public needs to be more aware about the effects of greenhouse gases polluting the air for the future of this country and the president should be the one advocating.
