    Hi my name is Lina and I am in fourth grade.Climate change is a very bad thing for us because we can actually ruin our future.We need to stop wasting water because water is something we REALLY need in our future.The time we have is not limitless so please see this message and help our world.Animals,humans and plants need a better future.The world is out of water.And it’s a bad thing because you pay even more like twice more then you usually pay for your water waste.People should always know that climate change can be a very bad decision for our and other people lives.And most of all ADULTS.Adults should ride a bike to work.You might say why should we do that.Well cars leave a bad smell on the road and people can get affected by it.And we can’t forget electronics.Dont look tooo much at you electronics because first it can be very bad for your eyes and second you use too much electricity.So please help the world 🌍
