When I was younger

When I was younger I was afraid of the dark, spiders and aliens. Not strange fears. Nothing special there.

Today I am afraid of things that no one should be scared of. I am afraid that I won't be able to see the world as land, seas and whole species will be destroyed by man. I am afraid that I will get cancer through the chemicals in the food we eat. I am afraid that I someday won't be able to see the stars because of the air being polluted.

These aren't fears one should have. Still they are real to me and so many others.

How are we supposed save our environment when we pollute the oceans and cut down rain forests. A scientist did a couple of weeks ago declare the Great Barrier Reef as dead. It had been destroyed by greedy humans. Rhinos have to get their horns diyed to keep illegal hunters from killing them for money. People are buying parts of the rain forests to keep companies from destroying them. Somewhere in the ocean a big island of the plastic we've produced is floating around killing birds, fish, whales and turtles. Companies pollute their crops to make it grow faster so that they can gain even more money. Cattle is being genetically modified to produce more recourses. Everywhere the air is getting polluted by cars and industries.

This isn't the way it should be. WAKE UP! Politicians and business owners see what you are doing to our, not your, but our world! What has existed for millions of years we are slowly killing. This is where we, mankind was created and we should treat our own birthplace with respect. The sad thing is that this whole thing is being denied by politicians. Donald Trump have spoken about how climat change ia hoax. Putin speaks about how it is a fraud made to restrain industrial development. It shouldn't be this way. I am ashamed to be human.

Now it's up to us, the next generation to fix what the people before us has caused.
