Dear people of 2050,
Today, we are seeing a global pandemic that has affected our lives and hopefully our future. Today, we have been ordered to continue to stay indoors, to wear masks at all times outside, and to practice social distancing. This has impacted our environment, especially towards air pollution. Right now because of low travel, our air is cleaner than this time last year. The Earth can breath as throughout the world NO2 and CO2 are reportedly down. This could be the beginning of a new start. I hope in the year 2050, we have taken the global threat of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions seriously. I hope for higher gas mileage in cars, more green public transportation and solar panels abundance in every roof. According to a Harvard study, exposure to air pollution may increase the mortality rate of Covid-19 patients and according to Helsinki-based Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air this decrease in air quality may reduce up to 11k premature deaths. I hope this unintended action leading to unintended consequences will become permanent. I hope to see a cleaner, greener future, where we can save more lives and keep the planet healthy. I believe in 2050, my hopes would be a reality. I can see it now.
