To my future children,

Climate change is a topic of the now in 2017. While it is of debate by many politicians, the average American agrees that climate change is caused by human behavior and going to have devastating impacts on the future. Most likely, you are living in this future that seems so distant now. In an attempt to make this world as pleasant for you as possible, I am doing my part to reduce my carbon footprint now. Some of these actions that I am taking or hoping to take is buying used electric vehicles, reducing my use of one-time plastics, being mindful of my energy use, and working for conservation agencies to protect forests and wildlife for you to enjoy.

It is my hope that you get to see the world for its natural beauty as I have. Every generation of people born sees a different, more impacted and less diverse natural world. The natural world that I see now is different from the natural world that my grandparents saw. The same is true for the world that you see versus what I see now. I am hoping that eventually this cycle ends, before there is no diversity or true pure natural beauty left.

We share this planet with past, present and future generations. What we do now, what has been done in the past all matters to the future. It is my hope that my generation continues to recognize the fact, and act on it, for you.
