Dear Baby Polar bear,
You are a fluffy bundle of playfulness rolling down a snowy hill
You are a mighty roar that will scare away any snow hare
You are as soft as a snowflake
And I want to show you something…
The sea is warming up
The sea is rising up and gnawing at the icebergs
Pulling square mile chunks down into the ice cold sea, that is not as cold any more…
The fish are too uncomfortable to stay in this warming water
Driving the belugas farther north to find more food to eat.
They say you and your siblings will wander into local towns because you can not find your own food
The ice will never melt to the point where you will have to balance it with seagulls and seals so you don’t fall into the deep dark sea.
No other beautiful landscapes will be destroyed
At least not any more
I’m sorry to the Amazon rainforests for the cattle herders burning away the bright trees football fields at a time.
To the Grizzly bears of Alaska being pushed around and around trying to find a home
To the Tortoises of the Galapagos island struggling to keep their heads above water
We are building student organizations like The Student Climate Action Board
We are making large strikes to make our voices heard!
We will protect you.
