To my grandchildren,

Hello,

I’m writing in hopes that I’ve taught you all well. Regardless, I’m assuming it’s gotten hotter in the future and I’m also assuming that (given I’m still around) I’m complaining that it’s too gosh darn hot. At the rate we’re going, I’m expecting the world to be doing pretty poorly by 2050, in regards to environmental concerns. There are people out there today (2020) that are concerned about this, and it’s no small amount. But past generations aren’t too happy about our concern. There’s a lot of politics around climate change and it’s usually not too great (some people don’t even believe that climate is changing!!!), but I’m assuming that hasn’t changed much by 2050 :(. Anyways, I hope that California still has its beauty. I hope that summers are hot, but forgiving. I hope the winters are cool, but not freezing.

Most of all, I just hope you all care about the Earth the way you should.

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?
