Dear Future Generations,

I hope that you outlawed gasoline consumer vehicles in the U.S or at least in my home state of California. In the U.S individuals have the biggest impact on the environment. We need to change our entire way we transport ourself in our personal lives. Most Americans in 2018 still use inefficient gasoline engine vehicles to transport themselves. Unfortunately, myself included. Mainly due to cost and transportation infrastructure, public transportation is very undeveloped in most of the U.S and the cost of the cheapest electric cars are twice to three times the cost of most consumer vehicles. In addition to that the infrastructure for electric vehicles is really only well developed in a handful or areas and states. When I look back on the progress our country has made in thirty years I hope we are able to mitigate the worst impact of climate change and human degradation on the planet and the limited resources it holds.

Thanks,

Blake Allen
