dear future self,

I am very concerned with what has been going on around the world with increasingly deadlier natural disasters, and it only seems to be getting worse over time because of climate change. Upon taking notice in the news, natural disasters are breaking more devastating records, and to the point where they are broken every year. Something I will never forget is the 2018 wildfire season in California, where the most deadly wildfires in state history took the most lives and even wiped out and entire town, called Paradise. In my perspective, since I haven’t experienced something of this great magnitude in devastation before, it really seems that California (and really other parts of the world too) are becoming more vulnerable to the effects of climate change. I remember about the two massive Hurricanes (Harvey and Irma) creating destruction in Texas and Florida. In my opinion, the real problem to climate change is the lack of willingness to take necessary action, and it could be because of multiple reasons. I admit that before I did not believe in this phenomenon on climate change, mostly due to my feeling that it’s insignificant in scale. Now I got to experience this problem in my own community, and I know and feel that it is getting closer, bigger, and more devastating over time. I promise that I will take action in the future on increasing public awareness and belief on that this climate change problem is real and we all need to do something about it immediately.
