Letter: Yarmouth 5th-grader says don't idle

I am a fifth-grader. I have noticed a lot of cars idling their engines when they do not need to in my town. It bothers me that people would just leave their cars on when they are not using them. I am telling you about this because it’s not only bad for the environment, people also have to pay for gas, and people with asthma cannot breathe well with fumes in the air. So I request that we keep our environment clean, people healthy and money in our pockets by not idling.

If no one idles, then we might have a better chance at saving the Earth, people’s health and the economy.
