Dear future generations,

I hope we have left the world better than we found it.

The year is 2017 and the predictions of what the world may look like at the year 2050 seem very bleak and I pray those predictions do not come true. The generations before me had blindly burnt fossil fuels, deforested our rainforests, polluted our oceans, and have put monetary gain above all else, without any comprehension of the repercussions of their actions on the environment. I hope it is my generation that can end all of this.

First we need to get people to accept the proven science and end the status quo of life as usual. We are damaging our planet and need to start helping it, we have already released enough CO2 in the atmosphere to irreversibly further cause damage to the climate. I personally will try my best to change the status quo. I plan on working within the government to create a clear path to operate society with eco-effectiveness. Rather than working towards capital gains we need to work on saving our home not only in the short term for ourselves but more importantly for you, the future generations.

Human ingenuity will help us along the way to preserve a safe living environment, but I fear that we will realize too late. As of right now there are far too many people that are shortsighted and need to be educated on the sensitivity of our ecosystems. Human ingenuity can only take us so far, meanwhile we are losing species and phenomena of our great planet that I hope you are able to see. If we fail to have the political and social movements necessary to incubate the change needed, for that I am sorry. You can know I will do my best make personal changes in my life as well as follow a career that will hopefully foster change in our world.

I hope we have left the world better than we found it.

Good luck.

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.
