To my future children,

Today, I am writing to you about the climate. The world is in a horrible state and the president the nation elected believes global warming and climate change is a hoaxes. There is wildfires on both ends California and other places are flooding. India air quality has passed hazardous levels. I am currently taking a climate change class in college and I have learned that if the world (especially the United States) do not take action now you might not be able to experience snow or other amazing things I was privileged to grow up with. You already probably reading about this in your textbooks or laugh about what this nations thoughts were.

I hope you get to experience snow and see the animals I grew up seeing and have the Amazon Rainforest. I hope that what the generations before me decided to ignore, your generation and future generations not ignore. I hope you get to experience seasons and get to breathe fresh air. I hope the mission of so many people as Greta Thunberg, come true.

I do not know what the future holds, but I am doing my part in making sure the people I vote for take this world as serious as this climate change is doing. I am trying to lower the levels of energy we use in the household, but it sometimes is hard when your aunt is so stubborn. They say it takes a village to raise children, well it will take the effort of the whole world to be able to improve our living arrangements for now and the future. Please take care of Mother Earth as I try today and tomorrow and hopefully you and your generation in the future.
