Dear future generations: Sorry.

"Only when the last tree has been cut down; Only when the last river has been poisoned; Only when the last fish has been caught; Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten." Geronimo. With that quote I want to open this post about our planet. It is probably that you cannot see the damage that our planet has suffered, but the future generations will. This video is an apology letter to the future generations that are going to come due to our destruction of the environment. It sketches a future in which there is lack of vegetation, fauna, and invasion of pollution in nature to it extremist form. Why? For money. This future may not look possible, but we have actually experienced harsh destruction and damage of the environment before and we are also experiencing it right now as the video shows. I personally think that a future with such destruction and contamination of our planet is kind of surreal; however, if we do not do something about it, it will not erase that fact that it is possible, it could happen. Please be aware of the environment. we are part of it. If we destroy nature, we destroy us. If we save nature, we save us.

    2. I also agree with you! But the thing is the world is so messed up we couldn't get a small school to get together and work together for a cause. How do people expect the whole world to get together and help? In my opinion it's impossible.

  3. It's true that we definitely have environmental issues but this guy makes it seem like they should be the only problems we focus on. There are a lot of other important issues that shouldn't be overlooked made seem to seem insignificant.

    1. Lily, thats true! There are a lot more than the environment like poverty and theft.. We should start by fixing ourselves first.

  4. The thing is, those bound be the law move faster than those who aren't bound. Plus with people working for the big companies, its pretty hard to save the earth. We should all just do as much as we can, like buy recycled and things like that.

  5. This video was so good. I thought the video was going to be about another topic. I loved how the video started by saying that we couldn't do anything about contamination. But then it said what we could do for the generations. I think it is an inspiring message for all of us. The change is not for us to wait but to make.

  6. I think he made a lot of powerful points in his speech that sometimes as a human race we may forget or be oblivious to. Hopefully we can start to make a change before it's too late. We can't ignore the the truth of what he said. Planet Earth is a beautiful place, and we want our future generations to enjoy like we are today.

    1. I agree with you Lindsey! We should really start doing something to make Earth a better place. Even if it's something small, I think it all helps at least a little bit.

  8. Oh i think this video is really cool! I saw it the other day and it made me actually start thinking like, I'm kind of scared for the future now because you never know what is going to happen.

  9. This video is great in my opinion. It makes me want to try and be more nature-friendly. He didn't just mention what we're doing wrong, he also mentioned what we could do. He inspired many people out there, I can tell. I like these types of videos, it helps opens up my eyes to so many different problems and widens my perspective on solutions and mentality.

    1. I agree with Arige except for the ¨be more nature-friendly¨ part. It sounded very queer. I agree with the part that he was inspired many people out there. I think these videos helps us (our generation) to open our eyes and see what´s going on.

  10. This video is valid. I agree with him. I believe our generation has become a mess like the things we do now a days, is horrible. This video makes me feel embarrassed about my generation. In the future, I bet the Millennials are going to be the worst and shamed generation in all history. I think my generation (millennials) are smart but stupid too. Our generation has a lot knowledge available but most of the people don´t use it correctly.

    1. I agree with Hanna. Our generation is on the verge of technology that can help us understand many things that couldn't be understood in past times. However, due to temporary distractions and tendencies people don't make a good use of what they have available. Imagine what ancient scientist and mathematicians could do if they had the resources we have now days.

  11. This video is inspiring and it makes you look back at all the mistakes that we have done in the past. We have to take this mistakes and use them as a lesson so we can make a better tomorrow without committing the same mistakes that brought us up until today.

  12. Wow! I agree that trees are very important to the world and that they help us breath and all that stuff. This video helped me notice that everything in the planet is helpful. I am so sad they are cutting trees just to make money. And if they cut the trees, we can't breath. And because we can't breath, we die. So what's the reason for making money if we wouldn't be able to use it because we can't live. I can't believe it :(
