Letter Written in the Year 2070

This is the year 2070

I have just turned 50, but i my apperance is of somebody of 85.
I suffer from serious kidney problems, because i do not drink enough water.
I'm afraid i do not have much time left to live.
I am one of the oldest people in this society

I remember when i was child of 5.
everything was very different then
There were lots of trees in the parks, house with beatiful gardens, and i could enjoy having a shower for half an hour.
Nowadays we use towels with mineral oil to clen our skin.

Before, women had beatiful hair.
Now, we hat to shave our heads to keep them clean without the use of water.
Then, my father washed his car with water coming out of a hosepipe.
Now, my son does not believe that water could be wasted that way.

I remember there were SAVE WATER warnings on outside posters, ratio and TV, but nobody paid attention.
We thought that water was to last forever.
Now, al the rivers, lakes, dams and underground water beds are either dry or contaminated.

Industry came virtually to a standstill and unemployment reached dramatic proportions.
Desalinasation plants are the main source of employment and workers receive part of their salary in drinkable water.

Assaults at gun point on the streets for a jerrycan of water are very common.
Food is 80% synthetic.

Before, the recommended quantity of water to drink for an adult was 8 glasses a day
Nowadays, I am only allowed half a glass.
We now have to wear disposable clothing, and this increases the amount of litter.
We are using now septic tanks, because the sewerage system does not work for lack of water.

Due to the excessive drying of the skin young people of 20 look like 40.
Scientist investigate, but there's no solution to the problem.
Water cannot be produced, oxygen is also degraded due to the lack of trees and vegetation, and the intellectual capacity of the new generations is severely inpaired.

The morphology of spermatozoa in many men has changed.
As a consequence, babies are born with deficiencies, mutations and physcal deformities.

Government makes us pay for the air we breathe, 137 m3 per day adult person.
People who cannot pay are expelled from the "ventilated zones", with huge mechanica lungs driven by solar power.
The air is not good quality, but at least people can breathe
The average life expectancy is 35 years.

In some countries, where there are still some green zones crossed by rivers, these are guarded by heavy armed soldiers.
Water became a very coveted treasure, more precious than gold and diamonds

Where I live, there are no trees, because it seldom rains.
When it happens to register some precipitation, it is of acid rain.
The seasons have been severely affected by the atomic test and by contamination from the 20th centuary polluting industries
We were warned to look after the environment, but nobody cared.

When my son asks me to talk abount my youth, I tell him about the green fields, the beauty of the flowers, the rain, how pleasant was to swim and fish in the rivers and dams, to drink all the water we could, and how healthy people were.

He asks: Daddy! Why there is no water?
Then, I feel a lump in my throat!

I cannot help feeling guilty, because I belong to the generation who contributed to the destruction of the environment or simply did not take into account al the warning signs.

Now our children pay a very high price!

I sincerely believe that within a short time life on earth will not be possible, as the destruction of nature reached now an irreversible stage.

How I woul like to go back and make mankind understand...
...that we still had tive to save our Planet Earth.
