Protect my future, address climate change

I’m writing because I am very concerned about burning fossil fuels. Did you know that burning fossil fuels increases CO2 and does not keep the air clean, which means that we are breathing dirty air and we can die because of that? Also, as it goes around the atmosphere it increases global warming that leads to melting glaciers and rising sea levels.

Please try to do something about this because I am a kid and this is my future!
