Dear Sammy,

As a 20 year old college student I am learning so much about importance of sustainability and outcomes of climate change. By this time you will be 34 years old. It is scary to learn about these things regularly because the future holds so many unknowns. There are some things that we do know about the future. The climate will continue to rise no matter what we do so we need to find a way to slow down this process and give back to the planet. The Earth has provided us with all the resources we need to thrive on this planet. We have taken advantage of the abundance of resources that the Earth has provided us with. We then distributed these resources unevenly throughout the planet to make a profit rather than providing the public with equal access to resources that are necessary to live. Because people have and still take advantage of the resources that we are provided on this planet, we must now take action to try and slow the climate change and mass extinction processes. I promise that from now on I will take shorter showers, walk when possible, take public transportation as much as possible, stop irrigating my lawn, eat less meat, and do everything I can to reduce the amount of waste I am producing. I am sorry for what you might be dealing with in 2050. Hopefully by that point things have changed and there are more sustainability guidelines people and companies must follow. Although there are changes being made right now, it must happen faster. l promise to do everything I can to advocate for change and recognition for climate issues.
