Hello future people,

I am sorry we are not doing enough to move towards green energy. It is unfortunate that we have to fight for clean water, greenspace, basic housing and clean environments. Greed has moved humans towards our doom. I have done much to move towards being green. In little ways I have tried to impact my carbon footprint. I use bamboo toothbrushes, I shop local and organic, I drive as little as I can and I take action in green bills and laws. However, it always seems no matter the march or the vote I take on my ballot, someone with a bigger wallet buys the vote. We still suffer from those who deny climate change. I see the greed of Monsanto, the oil and other powerful companies.  We see the struggles of Standing Rock and the damage done to Puerto Rico, yet we deny our earth is sick. I have little hope for what change we have done by your time. I am unsure if we have created better ways to get our energy or if we have moved to becoming a more sustainable world. I promise you I will continue to fight even when I am tired and I feel as though there is no point.
