Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

We are currently pumping greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere and not doing too much to stop it. Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority to really do anything about it. We see the threat in the near future and what it can do to your generation, but we don’t seem to care about it. We have resource issues and we are struggling to feed our own population. I am doing so much on a personal level to be able to spread the word on this. It is sadly not enough, but i will be there for us because i care about these issues. My schooling is going toward these problems. I know it will be harder for you in the future, but i have no doubt, under the pressure of many lives lost that we will figure it out. Do everything that you can to on a personal level to reduce your waste. Because if everyone lived like a wasteful person, the world would be in way worse shape. Pick up the slack for those who didn’t care now.

Dear Future,

It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.
