Dear future me,

Right now, the earth isn’t doing so hot. Or actually, it is too hot. See what I did there? This summer, the summer of 2021, you experienced your first California forest fire. You were in New Jersey. The smoke had traveled into the air and created a haze that held the sun so that it was somehow both gloomy and bright out. It created such an intense sunrise you took a picture on the way to work. You thought it was really cool, until you found out what it was from.

People do not care about things that do not make them money. Well, that is a lie, but it seems as though those running big businesses do not. Oil and fossil fuels are ruining the Earth. However, there are people who see the wrong and are trying to counter act it. There was someone named Doug that came to your school in the fall of 2021 to discuss the importance of rebuilding a better planet by planting native plants and restoring biodiversity. It gave you a lot of hope.

You know much more about taking care of the environment. Please use that information.

Best,

Me
