Global warming

A child's drawing of car pollution

Dear Leroy,

I also believe in global warming, mostly because of my deep appreciation of science, nurtured by a solid public education, as well as observing the daily evidence around me.

For example, I just came back from walking my dog Ivy at the park. It’s February as I write, and there’s hardly any snow on the ground. When I first moved here a number of years ago, there would have been giant snow piles where sidewalks and roads had been cleared. There would have been plenty of snow to play in and make snow forts. Now I can’t remember when there was enough ice for outdoor skating.

I hope that we all keep our shared environment in mind with everything we do.

Stay well,
