Secondly, although many humans do not believe to have a part in the effects of climate change, some of the conditions to be faced could be very dangerous and even life-threatening. The chemical responsible for trapping the Earth’s heat and gas is known as carbon dioxide (CO2). Concentration of CO2 over the years has spiked from 280 parts per million (ppm), to today's 400 ppm (Union of Concerned Scientists, 2017). As a society, we are continously warned about the dangerous amounts of CO2 we consume and our concerns are altered from whether we would reach such large CO2 concentration level to when. We are responsible for the increase in gas emissons. So much so, that scientist were able to test amounts of CO2 produced by natural resources and compare these amounts to those of fossil fuels from us (Union of Concerned Scientists, 2017). Evidently, the goal of this letter is to not convince you that the rise in climate change is solely caused by humans, but to understand that the Earth is continiously under man made and natural stresses. With emissons released through the vechiles we drive, to the ones naturally caused by sun radiation, our planet is suffering (Union of Concerned Scientists, 2017). Although certain aspects of climate change are envitable, there are many ways in which we can prevent the severity of its effects. Everyday we are given the opportunity to make the changes in order to sustain our home. Simple actions such as carpooling to work, consumely and producing less waste, and giving the opportuntity to listen to the opinions and thoughts of others are just a few of the things we can do.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
