Given the fact that it does make the nightly news more and more these days, I certainly have a plethora of which I could write about. But, I don't want Green Team Gazette to be the forum for just spewing doom and gloom. It's too doomy and gloomy!
But, we also can't bury our heads in the sand. It's a concept that needs to be revisited. Often. (Or at least, frequently.) When armed with information, we can then do what we need to do: we need to reinforce that climate change a significant matter that needs our attention. We need to reinvest our time, energy, and commitment to helping minimize the harmful effects of our lifestyles that are leading to the rising temperatures of this global problem. We need to remind ourselves of our individual and collective responsibilities in causing the problem so that we can begin to diminish the effects.
Thus begins a monthly feature. A MidMonth Manifesto, if you will:
"manifesto, noun: a public declaration of intentions, opinions, objectives, or motives, as one issued by a government, sovereign, or organization."
The following letter is from NOAA, where you can find many other great letters written by kids on climate change.
