To Whom it May Concern,

It is 2017 and we have a climate change denier as president. Our government actively removed information regarding the changing climate and how seriously it affects all of us on earth, our water, our food, our natural resources are all at greater risk than ever before. As our population grows we must make more from our ever depleting resources. I am sad to say I cannot guarantee the world will look the same for you as it did for me, what treasures will be lost between now and then I cannot say for certain. I hope by the time this reaches you climate change and it’s solutions will become a mainstream topic. If not for the sake of maintaining this earth than for the immediate danger it poses. I hope climate change has not been pushed under the rug. I promise you between now and then I will be critical of myself and my actions, critical of the behaviors and practices of the companies I choose to support and critical of my government, demanding through personal and community political action that they hold us accountable as a nation of people and corporations. I will take what I have learned so far and apply it to my life and the choices I make and seek out new knowledge and solutions and do what I can to share this knowledge with others. While my change may only be individual I know small changes can make a difference and my dollars carry weight. I will, along with many others continue to be thoughtful and critical regarding our world and always act with the future in mind. We make up a growing body of concerned citizens looking for avenues to voice our concerns, develop sustainable practices and spend our dollars responsibly. I hope this action combined with the many other efforts underway and even the efforts that have not been imagined yet help retain some of the beauty I have enjoyed for you to see for yourself.
