Dear fellow earthlings, I believe I represent every human alive today while saying this. Sorry, we are destroying your future. Please forgive us even if we are the worst creatures ever to roam the earth. I know because of us organisms are going extinct at a rate 1000 times faster than ever before. Because of us, you have to face issues like worsening forest fires and climate change. It’s our mistake but I don’t know why you are paying for it? We have cleared nearly 50% of the total forests of the earth in the last 100 years. To all those humans who don’t believe that climate change and global warming are real. Go and ask the polar bears in the arctic. Sorry, earth we are robbing you of your wonderful biodiversity. Sorry, Amazon we are the reason of your felling. We are treating or rivers like sewage pipelines. Sorry, dear fellow mammals we are using fur as a luxury. When I was just a toddler I dreamt of swimming with the humpback whale but that might not happen because of the ever increasing plastic in the ocean. We are creating an oven of the only planet we have.
But, wait we still have not passed the point of no return. We can fix what we have broken. By using solar and wind energy at the place of fossil fuels. By analyzing our carbon footprint, we can make necessary changes. The change needs to happen at the grass root level that is citizens, not the politicians. Bureaucracy isn’t going to do anything to save the earth. We the new generation of millennials need to be the change. Let’s get out of our homes and fight climate change because a small effort can make a huge change. I promise you earth on behalf of us humans. We will not let you be robbed of cute koalas and majestic lions anymore because we will resurrect this.
