Opinion: People Need to Care More About Climate Change

Our planet is hurting. Animals are dying, it’s getting hotter and sea levels are rising.

People need to care more about climate change. Climate change is forcing animals to move from their natural habitats. For example, higher temperatures are making winter shorter and hurting the moose population. Ticks are moving further north as temperatures increase. The ticks suck all the blood out of the moose who live there.

People say climate change does not exist. I think that is because they are worrying about other things like Covid. That is important, but people also need to care about climate change. If we want to stop climate change, more people have to take action. 

There are things you can do to help. You can donate to places that are trying to help, like this website called Giving Green or other organizations. You can also do little things like turn off the light when you walk out of a room or ride your bike instead of driving if you can. You can plant trees and pick up litter. If we all start caring about climate change, we can stop it and save our planet.
