Dear Ms. Jackson,
My name is Matthew Winick and I have a strong interest in studying history. The main reason I have a strong interest in studying history is to learn the need to protect the environment from pollution by having environmental protection with renewable alternative energy to reduce our addiction to oil with gas, the need to advance on Civil Rights to protect people who are different from discrimination, a need for government reform to reduce corruption in public officials including elections, finding ways to improve public safety with public health, and many others. For the future I plan on using history as a tool to teach people about the need to improve society. Ms. Jackson, I find your work and your life as a worker in the EPA Department, New Jersey Commissioner of Environmental Protection under Governor Corzine, and becoming EPA Administrator under President Obama’s Administration to be very inspiring to me with your common sense about protecting the environment and being an advocate for the need to reduce climate change.
Before you started working in the EPA I was amazed on how you got interest in being active in environmental matters by becoming a volunteer for an organization at Clean Sites where you worked with them to help speed up cleaning up toxic chemicals from sites to improve public safety. When you were appointed to be New Jersey Commissioner of Environmental Protection by Governor Corzine I liked on how you worked with law enforcement, community residents, and business on creating environmental initiatives to help reduce pollution in two cities Camden and Paterson by finding ways to reduce smog, improve public health, clean up toxic chemicals in drinking water, find ways to improve recycling properly with reducing littering, and many others. I was very proud of you for accepting President Obama’s appointment for you to become an EPA Administrator. When you were EPA Administrator under President Obama I liked on how you worked with him on finding ways to protect the environment from pollution by supporting his ideas to reduce climate change, implementing with promoting renewable energy like wind, solar, clean biofuel, and energy efficient products as energy sources to reduce our addiction to oil with gas. During the BP Oil Spill, I liked on how you worked with President Obama, Secretary of The Navy Ray Mabus, and the BP Oil Commission Former Democratic Senator Bob Graham and Former Republican EPA Administrator William K. Reilly on investigating the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf Bay, create ideas to improve public safety, advocate for regulations to prevent an oil spill, and create a plan to team up with community, local, and different states on rebuild them from the spill with providing clean up funds to improve public safety. Also I liked on how you spoke against the idea of building the Keystone Pipeline to help protect public safety including the environment, public lands, and farmers from pollution and future oil spills
Your work on environmental justice, being an advocate to reduce climate change with supporting renewable energy to reduce pollution, and your role as an EPA administrator helped me get inspired to be interested in learning more about the benefit of the environment and the need for renewable energy with alternative energy to reduce our addiction to oil with gas. Also your work on these issues helped me get motivated to watch documentaries about protecting the environment from pollution, the dangers of oil with gas on the public, and how renewable energy can make a great difference. Since 2013 and currently I myself am a volunteer at Ann Arbor Hands On Museum, a children science museum in Ann Arbor Michigan where I work with other volunteers on helping teach children about science through working with them on doing hands-on science demonstrations. Also as a volunteer I also work with other volunteers to teach children about the need to protect the environment with explaining how to reduce pollution.
Ms. Jackson, I strongly believe that you made a great difference in your role as an environmental justice activist and later being an EPA Administrator under President Obama on making a great difference to protect the environment from pollution with supporting ideas of renewable energy including alternative energy like wind, solar, biofuel, and energy efficient products to make society and the environment a better place. Even though these ideas are not popular with both parties in Congress and special interest groups I am very proud of you for standing up to them with ideas to protect the environment from pollution. Also I’m very proud of you for working with President Obama, Secretary of Navy Ray Mabus, former Democratic Senator Bob Graham, and former Republican EPA Administrator William Reilly on bipartisanship ideas to improve public safety, improve regulations limiting co2 emissions with pollution, and support the country moving towards renewable and alternative energy. I also strongly believe that protecting the environment and supporting renewable energy including alternative energy is not an ideology issue, but an American issue and an environmental issue,. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, inspiring me to be more aware about the environment, and working hard to make a great difference with your work on the environment. I want to wish you well for your role at Apple Inc. where you can help make their company more environmental safety.
