In the far, far, future, our children's children's children (or many generations after that) might be living in a sad wasteland where trees and most animals are practically neat memories.
Okay, it will take a long, long time and most of us reading this will probably be dead by then, but I'm fearful for the future.
We can prevent it, or at least prolong our exuberant time with trees and other animals.
WE GOTTA PLANT MORE STUFF! Okay, okay. Maybe planting just a little oak tree sapling in your front yard won't do much by itself, but with lots of buddies, they can do a lot!
Besides! A heck-ton of lil' mini oak trees might turn all together into big brave oak trees that make more oxygen and acorns that turn into little oak trees! Everything just gets even better.
Repeat and make different biodiverse ecosystems where they used to be before they got destroyed.
If everyone makes a group effort to restore all our forests, then good stuff happens. Y'know, like more rain, less sunburning heat, fresher air, but I don't know, maybe we can do without oxygen. Humans can TOTALLY do without breathing. It's not like practically every organism on earth relies on oxygen and has specialized organs to absorb it to live.
But it isn't like that.
So... Let's do something.
I'm Iris, a kid who has lots of reflections and views on life as I experience it. I love to read topics about the world around us, other people's ideas and opinions, and just about anything that I'm curious about and interested in.
