Dear future me,

In 2016, the increase of the world’s average temp is 1.69*F. I’m sure it has gotten higher from now to then, but it might have gotten lower, after it got higher. By now you would have started your/our/my business. Then hopefully gotten everything under control, and made movies. (Ya know, the dude in a suit, cool guns, demons? Or the other one about the guys in suits with the V visors?)

Because it’s getting hotter, wildfires burn down more trees, which releases carbon into the air, and takes away more trees (which means that there are fewer plants to take away carbon,) and more carbon makes it hotter. There is the same problem with ice, where if some ice melts because it’s getting hotter, then it will make other ice more susceptible to melting, and ice reflects heat, so less ice means more heat.

I think that by the time this letter gets to you, there will be tons of plans to fix climate change, because otherwise your world will have a lot of problems. To help do the little you can, maybe you could buy an electric car that is powered by sunlight, or convert most of you power for the company sunlight/wind (cheaper).

 

Sincerely,

Maddox K.
