To my future self,

I hope by the time of 2050, the world isn’t in chaos. Currently, in the year 2020, we are already seeing the effects of climate change. We’re watching the world we know disappear. Our continental ice is melting and we’re just watching it disappear. Hurricanes are destroying people’s homes and no one seems to care. People are dying, and no one will change their ways because it’s inconvenient.

Remember, sacrifices are necessary to help future generations to survive. When I think of the year 2050, I can only assume the worst. In my mind, I can imagine the increase in wildfires, carbon emissions, rising oceans, etc. With the way things are currently going, I can see change being done but not soon enough to save ice and snow from disappearing in the Arctic. However, I hope that when it’s 2050 we have learned to sacrifice our comfort to help to save the environment. I really hope that when it’s 2050 that we still have some ice left on Earth. Even if the possibility is slim, there’s still a chance for change. There’s a chance that the United States could have changed its ways and lowered their emissions. I want to believe that our peak in carbon emissions is coming soon. If it doesn’t, then I can only assume the worst.

Currently, the United States doesn’t seem to care about lowering carbon emissions. We are the worst globally when it comes to carbon emissions. This is the price we’re paying for living a comfortable life. We need advocates for change. I want and hope that more people like Greta and AOC will come and advocate to stop climate change. I hope that from 2020 to 2050, you are also an advocate to stop climate change. I hope when you read this that you still remember to continue empathizing with others who are in need of help. Don’t turn your back on those who are uprooted from their lands. Be a kind soul, and help them. Even if something doesn’t affect you, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t matter. Be the change and help others.

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.
