Dear 22nd century youth,

Dear 22nd-century youth!


   If you received this letter, it means that the planet I once lived on has survived until that time. I’m wondering if the name of our planet is still the same, the Earth, or if it has changed to a different one, like the name of the head of government, king or queen. Lots of questions I want to ask you guys. I can’t imagine what the world will look like that day. How is the weather? Is it extremely cold or extremely hot? Does the world look beautiful and lively? or it looks like a rubbish dump. Is climate change solved? or have things gotten worse? 


  I was the one who lived on the planet before you. During my lifetime, the problems of climate change rose. The Earth gets warmer and warmer every year. Many people don’t care about the planet and try to find a new place to live. The powerful countries do the same things as they usually do, ignoring the crisis we’re facing. Profits are more important than our home. Even the people don’t agree with what they’re doing, but the only thing we can do is just lessen the emission of greenhouse gasses on our own. I tried to do many things as I could to help save the world, like turning off the light when I’m not using them, or walking instead of riding a car. I hope it’s enough to save the beautiful world for you, the next generation. If it’s not, the letter will not pass to you. I’m so sorry about what we’ve done to our home and to you guys.


   I hope you have a good life and a good world to live. Take care of yourself and take care of the planet you live on. We have only one home, so save it for future generations.
