To the future generation,

Hello to whoever reads this letter in the future. Today is a beautiful sunny day without a single cloud in sight. The sun is warm with a slight breeze tingling down my face as I walk on the sidewalks. Over the next ten, twenty or even thirty years, these clear, sunny skies may not even exist. At the current rate of pollution and climate change that we are currently experiencing, cities may begin to fill up with smog and pollution. I fear the day that we may not ever see a sunny day in the future.

The natural environments of many places all around the world are changing more rapidly than we have ever expected. Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising, and it is only getting worse. Cities by the shore could potentially be new cities of Atlantis. Hopefully, by the time this is read, we would have already fixed our sea level problem, but as of this moment, the future seems bleak. I would hate to have to see cities such as Miami, or even San Francisco underwater.

Many people still don’t believe in climate change and its effects on the environment, but when everyone suddenly does begin to believe, I fear that it may be too late. We can still mitigate the amount of damage we have done and many people are actively doing so each and every single day. People have begun to recycle more and using more energy efficient methods of life. I truly hope that by the time someone reads this, we would have fully converted to sustainable methods of living. Whether it is through wind, hydro, solar, or even some un-invented source of power, it doesn’t matter. As long as we all begin to mitigate our energy consumption and conserve more, these beautiful, clear and sunny skies should still shine as brightly as today. I like to remain optimistic about the future and with everyone’s help, we can all make the future a better place for future generations to come.

The beauty and majesty of the world of your childhood is as remarkable as the beauty and majesty of mine, but the fragility of your childhood world is so much greater.
