Dear future children,
You have been given the opportunity to live in a country that is the most unique place in the world. As you sit back and watch, the world will become more and more decayed. While many sit back and focus on profits and short term gains, those who are not part of the developed and rich will suffer and will be wiped out if action is not taken. It is imperative that we continue to listen to the science that has been researched and proven.
The current state of the United States climate policy is not sustainable and will not be in place for long. I believe the people of this country will begin to realize that ignoring this problem is not an option. While Trump and his EPA head Scott Pruitt continue to dismiss the exigency of this problem, science continues to show the importance of action to save our fellow human beings.
When you are older and able to feel the effects of this problem, you will be met with a new establishment that understands the issues that we have. By this time we will have acknowledged as a society that this problem must be solved. At least this is what I hope and believe will happen. Remember that while you may not feel the effects as closely as some do, those that are in the most impacted regions are in a dire state. In 2060 places like the Maldives and Bangladesh may end up being examples of our failures. Let this stop you from ever feeling the greed that some people feel.
