Dear Future Generations,

We are living on a planet where the snow and ice are melting, the sea levels are rising, there is an increase in warmer days (heat waves), and a decrease in cooler days due to anthropogenic emissions. We have caused the temperature to increase, and the changes in climate. It is time for the human population to take immediate action and make changes, so we can potentially live on a healthy planet. Our future generations deserve to live on a planet where they are able to see snow and enjoy the fresh air. I am hoping we continue to move forward with renewable energy, including wind, solar, and hydropower, so we can stop depending on fossil fuels and other non-renewables for energy. I hope we will be using 100% renewable energy before or in the year of 2050. On the other note, we can take the first step to reducing our energy usage by unplugging appliances and turning off lights when it is not in use, line drying clothes outside, and simply switching to environmentally friendly light bulbs. In addition, we can ride bicycles and scooters, walk, or take the bus to reduce our carbon footprint on transportation. By taking these small steps, it will eventually become bigger steps to improving our environment. We are given one planet to live on, so we should take better care of it.
