I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

To the future generations,

Around the United States, there are many amazing creations of nature. The Great Smokey Mountain National Park is the most beautiful that I have seen so far. Getting to hike up mountains and to spend a week immersed with nature was a great experience. Everyone should be able to partake in this experience. This park—as with all of them—should be protected at all costs. It is important to have these green spaces incorporated into our lives.

Unfortunately, climate change can change all of this. As the temperature rises and the current climate changes, nature will be compromised. The current ecosystems that are existing, will not be able to survive through higher temperatures or different levels of precipitation. As the natural plant life dies off, the problems will only get worse and the temperatures will continue to rise even further. If it gets much worse, temperatures will not be able to support human life as well. You all are at risk. There needs to be change for the better.

I hope that by now, there are people that possess genuine care for the environment get put into power. As voters, we need to make sure that whoever is being elected has concern for how human-caused climate change is making an impact on the beautiful landscapes of the country. The relationship that humans have with nature should be harmonious. My hope for the future is that all of the future generations are continuing to work towards restoring this relationship.

My promise is to do what I can to raise awareness of the long-term effects of climate change. I want to set up this expectation to spread information for your generation and the ones that follow. Climate change is serious and there needs to be change as soon as possible.

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

dear future people (:
