Messages to the Future

 
 

We are all responsible for this change, I just hope we all can realize it in time.

Dear Tomorrow,

I grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It was a great place to grow up because of its convenience to an abundance of natural wonders. The opportunity to catch big sport fish on lake Michigan, hike through acres of untouched land, and see an abundance of wildlife everywhere I’d look. I remember walking through the sand dunes and into the miles of protected forests. I have seen these things change within

I promise to educate those around me about climate change and the realities that are soon to come, and the ones that are already here.

To the future generations-

This is a beautiful planet that we live on. It is such a wonderful place to call home. Although I grew up in boring, flat Illinois, I still loved that place and found it to be a wonderful place. I loved experiencing all of the seasons - hot summers, windy and cool autumns, snowy winters, and rainy yet mild springs. I loved traveling and being out in nature. It is

Have we made a difference?

Dear Future,

Is there still Ice? Is there still Seasons? Have we made a difference? Today we see the world and take it for granted, our government does not see global climate as a big impact, this year a lot of tragic incidences have happened. I hope you guys have made a difference since 2017 and our air is cleaner than it has ever been. It’s upsetting how much we let environment,

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

Dear Future

The date is November 5, 2017. The way things are right now, have me worried for the year to come. Our government officials refuse to see how our civilization is slowly killing our planet, and refuse to take action to stop it. Our air is becoming more polluted day by day and our oceans seem to be more plastic than water. These things although terrifying are not the end. I

I know I have already had an influence on those close to me, and my hope is that they have had influence on those close to them, too, and a chain reaction starts.

Dear future generations,

I hope you are finding this letter in good spirits. However, with the outlook on the future of this planet from today, November 2nd, 2017, I'm a little concerned you will be in a crisis state. We are actually in a crisis state right now, but so many of us are still just going on with our lives because we feel like any change we make on an individual level will

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

Dear loved ones in the future,

I cannot even imagine how the world will be in the future. Humans are capable of wonderful things, but they are also capable of some that are not that great. Still, I really hope that we can all get together behind this cause to protect our environment for all of you, for all of us. To my dear nieces, thankfully you are growing up in places that believe in and support

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

To the future generations,

Around the United States, there are many amazing creations of nature. The Great Smokey Mountain National Park is the most beautiful that I have seen so far. Getting to hike up mountains and to spend a week immersed with nature was a great experience. Everyone should be able to partake in this experience. This park—as with all of them—should be protected at all costs. It is important to have these

In 2017, you were just a one-year-old with two little teeth and the biggest brown eyes I have ever seen. But, the world was dealing with turmoil while you were just beginning to blossom.

Dear Sophie,

I never imagined myself living to see such a beautiful world go through so much chaos, but I would hope things are different now. In 2017, you were just a one-year-old with two little teeth and the biggest brown eyes I have ever seen. But, the world was dealing with turmoil while you were just beginning to blossom. The temperatures were high, the winds were roaring, hurricanes destroyed lives, and

I will from this day forward attempt to live a lifestyle that is cognizant of the health of our planet.

To my future Family,

It has become increasingly apparent now that the world in which we live has become tired and unable to sustain the demands and needs of humanity. In my lifetime I have come to understand that the concept of pillaging and misusing of valuable natural resources has been normalized. The governments which lead our world today have decided to turn their back on the generation of tomorrow, their policies and actions

It breaks my heart seeing how quickly global warming is growing and growing, leaving an enormous effect in our planet.

Dear Loved One,

It breaks my heart seeing how quickly global warming is growing and growing, leaving an enormous effect in our planet. I hope that there is still some of the beautiful world left for you to admire and cherish. I hope that little by little everyone will have made a positive change in the world. Today, I am blessed enough to enjoy all four seasons but will they forever exist? Global

In the year 2017, there were numerous disasters that happened all over the world.

Dear Future,

I am writing this letter in the year 2017. As of now the United States of America has gone through some interesting events. Donald Trump is our president... he does not believe in climate change and he decided to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. In the year 2017, there were numerous disasters that happened all over the world: earthquakes, hurricanes, massacres, wildfires. Some of these natural disasters may have

I hope in the next several decades everyone takes part in changing environment before the damages on Earth become irreversible.

To future generations,

In the present, the world is facing a problem where we heavily depend on fossil fuel. The burning of the fossil fuel is the primary cause of the world's global warming pollution. Especially in the U.S., we use a majority of our energy source for consumerism rather than necessity. Because goods and services are easily accessible, we often forget about the carbon footprint and how it impacts the planet. We

I pray that the world we all come to love transforms back to the beautiful planet it was intended to be.

To the Future generation,

I pray that the world we all come to love transforms back to the beautiful planet it was intended to be. It fears me that future generations that includes my children and grandchildren might live in a world that is only getting worse. With climate changing and ice caps melting I don't know what the world will look like in 50+ years or after our generation is gone. We are

Sometimes I watch Disney's Wall-e and wonder just how accurate that movie is because it's very much possible.

Dear Future Generations,

I, much like many in this site, am writing to you in the year 2017. As an individual who lives in the very populated California, it is easy to say that global warming may seem to be very fleeting with how much we don't see it in comparison to other places in the world. Presentable conditions vary everywhere but that doesn't mean that it's not happening. Its 2017, a time

Does it still snow during the winter?

Is it too late to apologize?

Climate change at the moment is like a giant snow ball rolling down a never ending hill that has become so big, it's unstoppable. Does it still snow during the winter? I really hope that in 30 years we've manage to, at the very least, slow the rate of our changing climate.

The temperature is increasing, the sea level is rising, and the sky is getting dirty.

To the future younger generations:

I am writing this letter because I hope you are living in a better life, a better environment. Now, this is 2017. We are experiencing the climate change. The global warming is happening. The temperature is increasing, the sea level is rising, and the sky is getting dirty. Even though we are trying to solve this problem, we still have a long way to go. I hope when you read this

At present, climate change has become a huge political debate in the world.

Dear Future Generation,

I am writing this letter from the year 2017. At present, climate change has become a huge political debate in the world. Some are against it, some agree with it. I hope, in your time, climate related issues wont be issue anymore. Every one will be well aware of it and its consequences if it is not given proper care. I hope your generation will do every thing to keep

I wish you luck and comfort in your future.

Dear Future Citizen,

I imagine you are living in comfort now. Everything is convenient for you to barely get out of your seat and the temperature in your home is always nice. Your entertainment and needs are nearby and the only outside obligations you have is to work to pay for these things readily available at your fingertips. I suppose your choice of inconveniences are to either be a little bit sweaty or

We have the means to stop this from occurring, yet we are taking no action.

To my unborn child,

I grew up in a ranch surrounded by miles and miles of agriculture. My backyard playground was a muddy river which was a result from the agriculture drainage, along with endless trees. I remember on warm sunny days my cousins and I would have messy water balloon fights or just simply wet each other with the water hose. Once we were tired we would have picnics under a huge green

It is the year 2017 and we have been experiencing some major environmental changes that are of great concern.

To my lovely children,

It is the year 2017 and we have been experiencing some major environmental changes that are of great concern. These changes have caused the destruction of natural habitats and many animal species are in danger. Some countries have also suffered from natural disasters, leaving many people helpless and homeless. To this day, many people are still in denial when it comes to accepting the fact that global warming is happening
