To Future Descendants,

I am writing this to you because the world that I live in now is extremely divided, in a world where people do not trust each other and a world where environmental activists are silenced.

Those people on the wrong side have mututal interests and are threatening the very existence of the human race. Climate change is a serious issue, but in today’s world no one seems to be taking climate change seriously. I have witnessed ice melting at an increasing rate, I experienced weird weather patterns at multiple locations around the world and still too many people today ignore scientific facts and reality and stick to being ignorant.

I believe this letter would serve you as a reminder of the serious obstacles that we need to overcome. Past approaches have not been successful. We need to take a different approach towards fighting the elite group of corporations who are hindering our efforts to save the only great planet out there. We are trying to populate other planets for habitat but cannot seem to fix the planet we are in.

I write to you so that you can learn from our mistakes and ignorance and choose a different path for bringing action against climate change.

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?
