Dear Future Generations,

It breaks my heart to even feel the need to have to write this.
I am a 25 year old girl living in London, turning 26 in 2 days!
I have been interested in climate change since i left school but recently i have grown more and more interested.

I am scared and saddened that in around 50 years from now the arctic will have practically melted. I love the snow, i love polar bears, i love the arctic weather i love visiting places like finland, yllas and Norway every winter. These places are the most magical on earth and to think one day they will be just an ordinary country breaks my heart. I want generations after generations to be able to visit these incredible places to experience the northern lights, snowboard and ice fish. If global warming continues as it is right now whilst I’m writing this then i fear all the beautiful things on earth will be lost forever.

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.
