Hey Everyone!

I don’t know what is going to come of climate change and, as a fourteen year old girl, I’m scared.

Last year, thanks to climate change, wildfires already got close to my house in Nelson, NZ. This year, the smoke from Australia is making my lungs clammy.

Life for me is pretty good right now (aside from the fear I push away), but I know others are suffering. I don’t know how to make a difference. I feel helpless while the people in charge are killing my future by not believing in climate change.

I know this is off topic but for all of you in the future, I hope you have found equality and happiness. I hope climate change hasn’t ruined you.

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.
