Letter: Engage in climate action on Earth Day

0

Editor,

As Earth Day 2020 comes to pass, it will mark the 50th year of this celebration of our planet. This means 50 years of inaction. Fifty years that the world has collectively let the climate deteriorate. Fifty years of fossil fuel companies knowingly  contaminating our water, air and land.

Today, homes are swept away in unprecedented floods. Droughts bring crop destruction and fires that destroy communities. Indigenous people, those who have managed to live in harmony with nature for thousands of years, are continuously ignored, exploited and slaughtered. Cities suffocate under air pollution that renders even going outside dangerous.

However, we see no real action from our government. This Earth Day, and every day, we must push for real action on climate change, something that even the pope has deemed a moral issue. Call your elected officials; join a digital climate strike; campaign for climate action.
