There is no denying that we are currently in the anthropocene era. We influence our world and make decisions everyday that are proven to be detrimental to the well-being of our ecosystems. If we do not act now, the future may not look so bright and green for our children. Politicians that boast about how "healthy and fine" our climate is should not be given the authority to make decisions that would ruin it for the rest of us. I implore our congress and governmental institutions to begin the process of making our world a healthier and more sustainable environment.
