One of humanity’s biggest impacts on the earth is climate change which comes from the burning of fossil fuels and the resulting CO2 that is emitted into the atmosphere. The symptoms of climate change include warming of the water and air, changing weather patterns and acidification of the oceans. If we are to treat the symptoms of climate change, we must demand that our political leadership act in two ways:
- Promote and support technologies that speed up the natural absorption of CO2. There are many early-stage companies developing different technologies to help remove excess CO2 from the atmosphere.
- Implement a carbon tax that will help reduce the amount of CO2 being emitted into the atmosphere. The most effective way to reduce our personal use of fossil fuels is to impose a tax on them. If fossil energy becomes more expensive, people will shift to energy sources with fewer carbon emissions.
Supporting a carbon tax requires political will because it requires people to make choices and sacrifices that are counter to their immediate gratification and in favor of the greater good. However, by attributing the costs of burning carbon fuels more directly to a consumer’s use of them we can not only reduce our demand on dirty energy sources but also, through economic means, influence individuals and couples regarding the number of children to have.

I am writing to urge your support toward policies that restore our climate. Reducing CO2 emissions will in the long term save the economy billions in health and environmental costs. I urge you to support promising technologies that will remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
In addition, attributing the costs of burning fossil fuels more directly to the people that use them will positively influence individuals choices towards greener lifestyles including smaller families which will have the greatest impact toward solving our climate and extinction emergencies.
Please support climate restoration for the sake of me, my family and all Americans you proudly represent. I am counting on you and will be paying attention to what you do on this issue. Should you or your staff have any questions, you may reach me at the above address.
