To My Future Descendants,

I am writing you from a world that is divided and dying.

Even though it is well known that carbon emissions are radically altering the climate of the planet that we live on, causing rising temperatures and melting ice, threatening the very existence of the human race on this planet. Those who are causing the problem have too much of a vested interest in continuing the industry that makes them wealthy to really care about you in our future.

There is enough food on this planet for everyone to eat, and yet many starve, there are enough resources to distribute clean water to all, and yet many die of thirst. Similarly, the technology and labor-power exists to solve this problem in front of us and yet the people who control that power refuse to solve it.

That is why I believe that if you are reading this and climate change is indeed an issue of the past, that it will have been through an intervention of the masses, and not the decisions of the elite minority that currently are holding us back, that this problem was finally solved.

Yet, I am writing to you from a world yet with hope to save itself.

Even as I write this, people from the parts of the world that will be the most affected by the coming cataclysm are rising up to try to take the power they need to fight back. From Mexico to Syria, From India to the Philippines there is a revolt against the powers that be, but it is a young revolution and only in the early stages. It is still possible that this revolt could be crushed as previous ones have been.

If we are to solve the problem by the time that you are reading this, the revolt must grow and become a truly global movement, the global south must rise up and demand with the voice of a giant economic freedom and environmental justice.

This is our only hope.
