Dear Mikey,

Visualizing what my community is going to look like in 20 years isn’t something I think anyone is looking forward to. I fear that severe storms will be more common than they are now and the planet is just going to keep getting warmer. In my visualization, I am hoping that we are near 0 net carbon emissions and most people are using some form of electric cars. The burning of fossil fuels is something that needs to go and needs to go fast. If we can eliminate fossil fuels I believe our planet will be able to heal at a rate not even ourselves can explain. I think one of our biggest issues today we have as a society is facing the reality that climate change is real and it is happening fast. Tons of people try to brush it off and act like it’s not their problem but that isn’t the point. Do you want your children to live in a world where they don’t have the same access to essential needs as you did because you are too careless to think of others. Just within the last couple months a water bridge connecting important parts of my town collapsed due to severe weather. Never in my families life has there been an accident like this and it’s all because of climate change. Yet again another example of how climate change is costing us tons of money to repair things that are just going to need to be repaired again. If we can tackle the root of the problem here which is climate change then we won’t have to worry about everything else. Over time the planet will heal and allow us to live amongst it calmly as we have for thousands of years. We won’t be the last generation to grace this Earth so we should do our best to make sure future generations have the same advantages as us.
