To the next generation,

By now many of you guys probably see the affects of climate change. I have been on this earth for years and unknowingly damaging this planet. College has opened my eyes in realizing that our daily consumption cannot be ignored. The everyday person in this society over consumes or supports huge industries that damage our planet. I hope by the time you read this, there are solutions to the great problems we face. There are trees being cut down just to bring us cheap palm oil! We still cut down trees for paper instead of coming up with an alternative! There are acres of land being destroyed for oil production! I truly hope than years form now our sustainability efforts start to grow.

The planet is a precious and beautiful world and it is a shame to feel like it is hard to save. Unfortunately, I can only do so much to help. People need to realize that although it seems like one person isn’t enough to create change, we are the demand, we can have a say in at least some part of production. There is current political debate about if climate change is real. It seems people think it is possible for places like the poles to just naturally melt or for carbon dioxide to naturally increase in such huge quantities.

To the next person that faces the earth we are leaving now. I say sorry. Many people are still misinformed here in the United States. The people like me who are begging in to be informed, have already contributed 22 years of damage. My hopes is that people can continue to educate others that are not in college to help our earth prevail long and healthy.
