Dear Gorasia descendants,

It is 22:44 on 2nd March 2017.

I am writing to you from my university library, in between learning how to get a 1st class grade on an essay in a subject that I hope will rise to greater prominence and acceptance than it is today – that is environmental law. Setting hard laws rather than soft laws to enforce regulations in Treaty so that Nation States are obliged to cooperate (it really is sad that they don’t take initiative from their own affinity to our great planet Earth).

Earlier today I got laughed at for suggesting that climate change is more urgent now than ever, they replied with “it’s all propaganda”. Meanwhile, in reality, scientists and recorders have stated that we have just come off the back of what was the warmest year in recorded history (2016). When I was a child I wondered where the fumes from cars went, now, at the age of 20, I spend every day of my life trying to figure out ways in which we can collectively reduce the implications of said climate change. I say reduce because we as a species have already plucked so much of the goodness from our planet and its atmosphere. So, from this day on, I will not take my car to work: I will cycle; I will not use coal and fossil energy: I will use solar, reusable energy; I will do everything in my power to prevent the greed of governments from deforesting areas so crucial as ecosystems to the animals, plants and trees that make our planet the beauty it is.

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet in the hope that the day never comes where we have to ration for food because all the farms’ crops have rotted with smog in the air, or my great-grandchildren aren’t able to see Elephants with tusks or Polar Bears in general because greed has led my fellow Humans to remove the tusks for Ivory and infiltrate the Arctic for oil. If I can play a role in preventing this, and much more, from happening, I believe the world will be a better, safe place for the generation reading this in the future to come.

Sincerely,

Puneet Gorasia (your hero) x

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear People Of The Future,

It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.
