To future generations,

I am so sorry that there were so many people in the world that didn’t believe that climate change was real. Unfortunately, you inherited a world very different from the one I was born in. There were plenty of scientists that warned us about what was coming, and many grassroots movements that tried to make changes to stop the world from going past the tipping point. Based on news stories I read today, it appears we have reached that point, and not enough governments and/or people willing to make changes that would back away from the tipping point.

I just want to say that I’m so sorry
