Stop Greenhouse Gas Emissions to Reduce Wildfires

Target: Michael S. Regan, administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Goal: Put an end to increased air pollution caused by wildfires by halting greenhouse gas emissions.

This past summer was an incredibly hazardous time to be outside. The Canadian wildfires spread smoke to the U.S., infiltrating air systems and increasing air pollution. The worsening of climate change has made wildfires more common, and now, cities such as New York have to face the repercussions. Civilians had to wear masks and were warned to stay inside during the peak of smoke build up. Not only do environmentalists worry about the fires ruining the progress from The Clean Air Act, they also worry about the safety of people affected by the smoke. Greenhouse gases drastically impact climate change and increase the risk of wildfires, and something must be done immediately to stop another dangerous wildfire from occurring.


Dear Administrator Regan,

The Clean Air Act has worked to improve our air quality and environment, but with the increase of greenhouse gas emissions, wildfires are more likely to ignite. The global increase of wildfires harms environments, animals, civilians, and overall air. To sustain a good air quality, greenhouse gas emissions need to be stopped. Earth is already facing severe repercussions from pollution and climate change; more must be done to sustain it.

Please stop greenhouse gas emissions, or at least reduce them. This is a much needed change to stop wildfires from causing further destruction. Our air is at risk, as are we.
