Dear Future Generations: Sorry

Dear Future generations. I think I speak for the rest of us when I say Sorry. Sorry, we left you with our mess of a planet. Sorry that we were too caught up in our own doings to do something Sorry, we listened to people who made excuses to do nothing I Hope you forgive us. We just didn’t realize how special the Earth was like a marriage gone wrong We didn’t know what we had until it was gone.. For example, I’m guessing you [probably] know it as the Amazon desert, right? Well believe it or not it was once called the Amazon rainforest and there were billions of trees there. All of them gorgeous and oh.. You don’t know much about trees. Do you? Well, let me tell you trees are amazing. I mean we literally breathe the air They are creating they clean up our pollution or carbon, they store and purify water give us Medicine that cures our diseases food that feeds us which is why I’m so sorry To tell you that we burn them down Cut them down with brutal machines horrific at a rate of [Forty] Football Fields every minute That’s 50% of all the trees in the world gone in the last hundred years why? For this. And that wouldn’t make me so sad if it weren’t so many pictures of leaves on it You know when I was a child I read how the native Americans had such Consideration for the planet that they felt responsible for how they left the land for the next seven generations Which brings me great sorrow because most of us today don’t even care about tomorrow? So I’m sorry I’m sorry that we put profit above people greet above need the rule of gold above the [Golden] [Rule] I’m sorry we use nature as a credit card with no spending limit over Drafting animals to extinction stealing your chance to ever see their uniqueness or become friends with them Sorry, we poison the ocean so much that you can’t even swim in them But most of all I’m sorry [about] our mindset cuz we had the nerve to cause this destruction progress Hey Fox news if you don’t think climate change is a threat. [I] dare you to interview the thousands of homeless people in Bangladesh [see] wow while you were in your pit house nestle their homes were literally washed away but need their feet due to rising sea levels and Sarah Palin, you said that you love the smell of fossil fuels Well, I urge you to talk to the kids of beijing who are forced to wear pollution. Masks just to go to school So you can ignore this but the thing about truth is it can be denied Not avoided I’m sorry future generations. I’m sorry that our footprint became a sinkhole and not a garden I’m sorry that we paid so much attention to isis and very little to how fast the [ice] is melting in the arctic I’m sorry, we doomed you and I’m sorry we couldn’t find another planet [and] time to move [to] [I] am You know what cut the beat? I’m not sorry This future I do not accept it because an error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it We can redirect this how let me suggest that if a farmer sees a tree that is unhealthy And they don’t look at the branches to diagnose it they look at the root so like that farmer We must look at the root and not to the branches of government and not to the politicians run by corporations we are the root that we are the Foundation this generation it is up to us to take care [of] this planet. [it] is our only home we must globally warm our hearts and change the climate of our souls and Realize that we are not apart from Nature We are a part of nature and to betray nature is to betray us the save nature is to save us Because whatever you’re fighting for racism or poverty feminism gay rights or any type of equality it won’t matter in the least Because if we don’t all work together to save the environment We will be equally extinct so Hey guys for the past several weeks I’ve been here in Africa the heart of Africa witnessing the horrific destruction of the rainforests which inspired me to write this piece Wire for is being destroyed that such an enormous rate for this Today, we live in a world where destroying trees? Makes you money, so what can we normal people do about it? One way to directly fight the destruction is to stand for trees by standing for trees Not only can you save the lives of trees help forest communities and protect the rights of animals to live in their homes? But you will also balance the amount of pollution that you yourself give off your everyday activities Making you a part of the solution and not the problem This is the option that I chose but whatever way that you choose to stand for trees do it because a wise man once said When the rivers are all dried up and the trees have been cut down Man will then realize that he will not be able to eat Money.

    Wow – I have just started High school. And when I saw this title I thought it’d be something funny. But this was such a powerful speech. All my teachers are saying how it’s my generation’s responsibility to save the earth. I’m doing a unit on pollution. Some people say “nah I don’t wanna hear this crap, it’s depressing”. Well – it’s what we’ll have to face. I want to find out a way or material just as good as plastic but not as bad for the environment. I don’t want my children, not to know what the stars are, what magnificent animals look like, what the colour of the sea used to be. I don’t want them to not know how beautiful our earth was. So one way or another, us humans cause crap to happen, but we will solve this and we will fix it. In the future, we will be forced to change. Most of the things causing the environment to break down is stuff we WANT for comfort, like straws, when… we have mouths for a reason. A lot of people probably think “if I stop using straws.. ain’t nothing gonna happen”. Well what happens if everyone thinks that. Then nothing happens. Everyone CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. By using a reusable straw or a cardboard one, you can save a turtles life. ??
    So everyone please , just try something , like not using a plastic bag, or straw for a month or two. Spread the news. Make it a trend. Save this planet.

    If humans want to preserve nature, then humans should stop knowledge advancement and we need to go back as what we were just a few thousand years ago because this generation doesn't care anymore about what's happening in this world but the problem is we can't reverse it because many people were influenced by the technology, even me, I use my phone 6 hours straight.

  41. Syco Faided says:

  58. Leaf Tail says:

    Remember humanity can slowly Reverse Climate Change by simply changing things that we do in daily life:

    Try to use less plastic Stock up on fabric bags,

    Dont litter..

    Eat Less Animal products like Meat and Dairy. The productaion of Meat needs alot of resorses from the Earth.

    Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three "R's" to conserve natural resources and landfill space.

    Volunteer. Volunteer for cleanups in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed, too.

    Educate. When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources.

    Conserve water. The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean.

    Choose sustainable. Learn how to make smart eating habits.

    Shop wisely. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.

    Use long-lasting light bulbs. Energy efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also flip the light switch off when you leave the room!

    Plant a tree. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.

    Don't send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic chemicals in the home and office.

    Bike more. Drive less.

    to bad my generation won’t be able to live full lives thanks to global warming and pollution. just one day we’re going to suffocate if the world is going to keep getting destroyed because there isn’t enough people who actually change things and would help like him. my generation is growing up being told we are to young to have a voice, so they want us to be quiet and watch people suffer and this world slowly end.

  72. Nic Mos says:

    Maybe most of the people that are watching this video are the future generation and watching this video there are 2 steps that we (future generation) will do in this video.
