To Future Leaders,

We currently struggle with climate change and the influence of Earth’s temperature due to burning fossil fuels, deforestation, single-use plastic pollution, and the effects of farming. All of this and more contribute to increased greenhouse gases that create a snowball effect worsening albedo, radiation, and heat reflection. We live in a time where it’s normal to breathe in aerosols that produce respiratory health disparities, and the world is not doing enough.

I hope that by 2100, carbon emissions are lower than now, and we have found even more energy alternatives than solar and wind energy. Although these are great alternatives, they are costly and, in some regions, ineffective. The world is in such a divide because of how much money is produced from these influential negative pollutions. An example of how widely interacted these influences are is creating single-use plastic such as the water bottle. Almost everything purchased comes in plastic that will be thrown away and not properly recycled. Although it is excellent that recycling is possible, we do not implement it enough. This is a continuous production of new plastic rather than melting down and recycling disposed of plastic. This increases carbon and fossil fuel emissions since plastic is made entirely from fossil fuels. The use of single-use plastic contributes to the melting of ice-caps, increased radiation, heat, and a rise in sea-levels.

I pray that by 2100 the world will realize that money will not be able to fix Earth. The only way we can work towards a better future is by implementing better environmental health policies now. Ending the use of fossil fuels and living off of local livestock and produce. The contribution from the travel of produce containing single-use plastic to our home alone will significantly impact our environment. Understand that we all need to contribute and make efforts to make this intense switch. In the long run, we will be sacrificing a little to gain a lot.
