Dear Grandchildren,

I am taking the time to write this message because I really want to make a positive impact in today’s climate change. I am currently living in one of the greatest period of time in the history of the world, I have everything that I need such as running water, electricity, food among other important commodities. It is the year 2018 and even though we have the greatest technology at our disposal, we are facing a serious problem global warming. Human activity is the main reason why temperatures are rising, weather patterns are changing, and many animals species are in dangerous of going extinct.

To solve this issue we must come up with alternate solutions such as relying in clean renewable energy solutions. We must stop using fossil fuels as the main source of electricity to power our homes. Fossil fuels must stay in the ground because that’s where they belong. Governments and the private sector must come together to solve this issue.

To make a positive contribution to this issue, I have decided to make public transportation my main source of transportation to school. In addition, I have decided to not be a typical American consumer, I don’t have to have the latest phone, the fastest laptop, the nicest cars, or the biggest house. My contributions might not sound impactful but I hope it will motivate others to do their part as well.

Grandchildren and to who ever is reading this, I want to apologize for leaving this planet in not so good conditions. I must confess that we could’ve done better, but greed and corruption from the governments and corporations of the world got on the way. I hope you don’t hate us because some of us tried our best to make a positive impact to this horrible reality: climate change.

Sincerely, Josue Gongora
