To my grandchildren,

Climate change has been a big issue on Earth my entire life. It is year 2020 at the moment and I am 24 years of age and the issue of climate change has been occurring long before I was born as you might know. And due to the amount of inactivity our current government is doing, things will most likely be worse by the time you read this message. With the US no longer following the Paris Climate Agreement and our government being run by oil loving climate change deniers, the prosperity of our once healthy planet is beginning to look like merely a dream.

While the proper insight has been done to determine the possible actions that humans can do to save our planet from global warming, it is another debate entirely if humans will follow through with our discoveries. In California, the transition to electric cars is slowing happening, more and more households are using solar energy, wind turbines are slowly appearing, and meat alternatives such as vegan products are becoming more mainstream which gives signs of hope. But ultimately mitigation is the name of the game during these trying times. And with the increase of wildfires and our ever looming drought that California must deal with, I pledge on taking a bold stand on climate action for the betterment of our great planet Earth and for a better and healthy future for my future kids and grandchildren!
