Dear future relatives,

I am currently writing this letter in the year 2020. There are still people who don’t believe in global warming. Some who do believe in it unfortunately think that not being environmentally concerned is a form of freedom that they deserve. Many people have little regard for the treatment of the earth and how that will affect every living thing in the future. I hope that in the future that legislation and new technology has made it more possible to preserve our earth for those in your future. I predict that it will get to a very low point where everyone will have no option but to take climate change seriously. I hope that one day politics and economics are not restrictors to the health of the earth, because if that is the case then the earth won’t be that wonderful decades to come. I really hope that in the future, greenhouse gas emissions are lowered and deforestation is significantly decreased (creating more trees than destroyed), and I also hope that people are more environmentally aware. I think that things will get worse before they get better, but I really do hope that one day humanity can make up for its destruction.  Good luck.
