To the editor:

I wish I had more time to express my concern for our nation’s future and outlook of our global environment. But I want to at least express my support for the steps that President Barack Obama has taken to protect our environment and achieve some balance between fossil fuels and renewable energy.

I also want to ask you and your paper to stress the importance of gradually moving away from fossil fuels whenever possible. I recognize this is not an instant process, but one that will take many years.
