To the Editor:

For the last couple of decades, global warming has been a growing problem. Yet it seems as if a lot of people, especially Americans, are ignoring the issues. As Americans, we make up about 5 percent of the world's population, yet we contribute 25 percent of the world's emissions.

We complain about gas prices, and we still buy SUVs and Hummers, knowing full well that they cost a lot of money to fill and use a lot of gas. It's time for people to start realizing that some of the choices we make are not helping and, in some cases, making things worse.

There is a native American proverb that states, "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children." Not only are people not conscious of the fact that they do not own the world and its resources, but we children of America need to start making some changes on how things are done.

Soon, it will be our time to run this country, and we should start by making wise decisions that not only help us in the present, but preserve the earth for future generations.
