Editor’s Note: These are some letters from Danielle Arnold’s Grade 2/3 class at Cordova Bay elementary school. Arnold said the class studied global warming and decided they needed to write letters to the newspaper “because lots of people read the newspaper.”

. My name is Annalee. I am 7 years old. I go to Cordova Bay School. Help us stop global warming. We have a problem with global warming. Use less gas. Try to buy an electric car. Global warming is very bad and we have a very big problem.

. My name is India. I am 8 years old. I go to Cordova Bay Elementary. Global warming is heating up our earth. To stop it use electric cars. What does global warming do? It heats up our earth. It happens when heat comes in our atmosphere. Then the gas from cars makes it bigger. It makes it harder for the heat to escape. With no heat escaping, the earth gets hotter. We can help by eating less meat. Bike or walk to school. Make this problem smaller.

. My name is Stella. I am 8 years old. I am from Cordova Bay School. In science we are learning about global warming. It is a problem. We need your help to fix this problem. You can start by doing more movement with your legs. Also eat less red meat. Turn off your lights when you leave the house.

. My name is Logan and I am 8 years old and I go to Cordova Bay School. I want to stop global warming. So do my classmates. I hope you can fit this in the newspaper so here are some facts. Global warming is caused by greenhouse gases. I think we should have an electronic free week in April. If we don’t stop this we can’t live. We can stop global warming by not polluting.

. My name is Cameron. I am 8 years old. I go to Cordova Bay School. I am writing a letter to you because I need you to put this in the newspaper. If we don’t stop global warming lots of animals could die and I am sure you don’t want that. So what do you think? Global warming facts: Global warming is caused by cow waste. Global warning is also caused by fossil fuels. Warning: Global warming is very bad.

. My name is Lule. I am 8 years old. I go to Cordova Bay School. My class and I are learning about this big problem called global warming. Global warming is something that happens every day. It must be stopped before it gets too big of a problem for us to stop. Start today so you can help the earth and everyone around you. Step 1 – use less energy. Step 2 – drive less. Step 3 – try to stop the greenhouse effect.

. My name is Graydon. I am 8 years old. I go to Cordova Bay School. Global warming is making our world hotter and hotter. If this keeps up Africa may be too hot to live in. We can slow down global warming by doing the following: buy an electric car; walk more often; recycle. If we do this we can slow down, maybe even stop global warming.

. My name is Scarlett. I am 8 years old. I go to Cordova Bay Elementary Schhol. Me and my class have been studying global warming. Global warming is serious. We have to do something about it. Polar bears could become extinct. The ice caps are melting and these animals and lots of others can be lost because of this. Here are my top five ways to stop global warming and facts: 1) Take the bus more often. 2) We all have a carbon footprint. 3) The greenhouse effect makes the earth warmer. 4) Take your bike or walk. 5) It is killing the plants so there is less food for us and the animals. PS: Kids can change it.

. My name is Brianna. I am 8 years old. I go to Cordova Bay School. We are learning about global warming. It is a problem. Please use less electricity because if we don’t the world will get hotter. So if you’re cold, put on a sweater instead of turning on the heater.

. My name is Ella. I am 7 years old. Me and my class are concerned about global warming and what it is doing. Here are some of the ways you can help: 1) Buy an electric car. 2) Bike or walk. 3) Use your car less. Did you know that if we keep global warming up then it could lead to extinction of pandas and many more animals? I think we should have a powerless Saturday.

. My name is Selma. I am 7 years old. I go to Cordova Bay School. We are learning about global warming. Global warming is when you pollute. For example when you drive your car to the book store, you pollute because you’re using fossil fuels which are a kind of gas. Don’t forget to recycle and take a bus or bike or walk anywhere. Global warming is a really bad thing.

. My name is Caleb. I am 7 years old. I go to Cordova Bay School. I try to walk or ride my bike most of the time. I help my mom not to use the car. My family recycles and we compost. We are trying to slow down global warming.

. My name is Tristen. I am 9 years old. I go to Cordova Bay School. Now are you ready for some amazing facts. Global warming is bad. Polar bears, snowy owls and other animals are endangered because the ice caps are melting because of global warming. Global warming is caused by cars. They create exhaust, which turns into pollution and causes global warming. This is why I am writing to you. I was hoping you will put this into the newspaper so people will see it and help.
