Letter: Paris agreement on mind of reader

Editor:

Remember that first picture — “Earth Rise” of our beautiful world? Breathtaking and glorious! And now, with an estimated 30 years left to make worldwide adjustments, time is running out to save this special and wonderful planet. Do you want to be the one to explain to our children why we allowed it to be destroyed?

We should ALL be ashamed of ourselves if we allow the United States to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. What would we be saying to future generations? What inheritance would we be leaving to our children, grandchildren and their children?

Nearly 200 countries have joined this global commitment to fighting climate change and we need to be not just a member, but a leader. The United States of America should be doing everything possible to combat this greatest threat to our planet.
