Dear Future Me,
I am writing this as an update of where we are now and as a sounding board for what I hope we will achieve in the coming year. Global climate change has begun to take such drastic effect that it is now both tangible and visible for people in many different parts of the world. As it continues to hurt people’s lives, we, as a population, do not seem to be doing nearly enough to actually aid the problem. Far too often people post about and talk about climate change without actually altering their daily regimens or doing anything substantial to aid the problem. I hope, in the coming years, people will begin to alter their own individual actions in order to reduce waste, the production of fossil fuels, etc. in addition to contributing to the problem on a group/national scale. I would love to see some effective changes to U.S. law on the front of climate change and do not see that as an unreasonable hope for the future.
