To myself, my family, and all the world,

I am sitting in the library in my senior year of college as I write this message. As I am approaching the last few weeks of my college years, I am reflecting on the memories, and hard work that college entails. As I walk on stage at graduation, I will have a sense of happiness and pride as my life will officially start, and I will be building a future for myself. However, as I am sitting in my Global Climate change class, I can’t help but think about how Earth could potentially be on the edge of collapse if society goes not limit their greenhouse gas emission.

I think life has a funny way of working things out. In your twenties, you have all this energy to travel and want to see the world with no money, and in your later years you have all the time and money but no energy. I have seen the beauty of the waterfalls in Bali, the northern lights in Norway on just ends meet. Even though, I am working part time jobs to pay for these trips, I couldn’t imagine seeing the beauty of the world and different cultures. The thing that saddens me, is that society doesn’t make a change in how we view global climate change by the time I can afford to travel more, the world might be diminishing in its beauty. My next destination is going to be the Great Barrier Reefs in Australia because the coral reef is dying so quickly, I feel like if I don’t go soon, I might never get the chance to see it in person. If we don’t change anything, there’s a chance my future kids will never get to see the beauty of our planet.

It’s 2018. And yes, solar energy and wind power are being used but not at the rate they should be. Primarily, people are still using natural gas and electricity to power their energy.  In 2030 or 2050, I would hope that everyone has converted to electric cars rather than gas. I think this would be attainable if they government just banned cars running on gas. However, the world revolves around money and if these are companies are not selling cars, the economy crashes. I am hopeful that there’s a brighter future, rather than the great domino effect of the planet destroying.
