Messages to the Future

 
 

The small and large impact behaviors are all important and gain momentum over time and create more and more good.

To My Future Children,

I am writing this to you in the year 2017, as part of a college course. Today it is windy and rainy, but tomorrow will be different. So too will be the future. I have no idea what the future holds for myself or for you, my future children, but I want you to have the courage to face every challenge and obstacle head-on. Things in life may be tough

We share this planet with past, present and future generations. What we do now, what has been done in the past all matters to the future.

To my future children,

Climate change is a topic of the now in 2017. While it is of debate by many politicians, the average American agrees that climate change is caused by human behavior and going to have devastating impacts on the future. Most likely, you are living in this future that seems so distant now. In an attempt to make this world as pleasant for you as possible, I am doing my part

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan "get with it honey".

Dear Future Sami Lee,

I hope this letter finds you and you're laughing at the idea that climate change was such a big deal that I had to write a letter to you. But in 2017, climate change is far from a joke to be laughed about. Currently in 2017, my life motto is "save the motherfucking bees" which also explains the bee tattoo that you have either on your hip of ankle...(am getting

Change how you use resources, change how people act, change how people look at renewable safe energy and preserving resources, and change how you think just like I did.  

To my future children and grandchildren,

Today it was 70 in New England on October 26th 2017 where by now people should be bundled up for the normal fall temperatures. That isn’t happening anymore sadly - As you can see the world has evolved and changed so much based off everyone’s involvement in some way. I want you to know climate change has been an overall concern back in my good days as well but I

I am dedicating my life to making a positive impact and protecting our natural resources.

Dear Tomorrow,

I am urgently concerned about climate change. Nothing hurts me more than the thought that you may never be able to see the beauty in this world that I have seen. Because of this, I am dedicating my life to making a positive impact and protecting our natural resources. I have made personal changes to reduce the impact of climate change and I hope to make nationwide or even global

I live in a funny time lately - a changing world, with believers and nonbelievers of this change.

Dear loved one,

I live in a funny time lately - a changing world, with believers and nonbelievers of this change. Our president and people with authority deny climate change but the rest of us know the truth. It is difficult to feel like a single person like me can make a difference but I'm trying my best for your future. I commute each day on the bus to cut down on my

The ocean is rising, dunes are eroding and the place we call home on cape cod could be drastically different one day.

To my grandkids,

This is pop pop jack. Year is 2017 and things are getting wild. The ocean is rising, dunes are eroding and the place we call home on cape cod could be drastically different one day. One thing I did to step up was to stop using plastic water bottle and use reusable bottles and glasses. Also, I tried to unplug all unused stuff around the house. This def made some

I think it is a beautiful thing to be passionate and to stay motivated, and the only way to do that is to do what you enjoy doing!

Dearest Summer,

This is your cousin Mackay on October 30, 2017. Tomorrow I will enjoy a night out with my friends for Halloween and hopefully make memories that I will cherish and weave together to remember my senior year of college. Right now you are 10 years old and I can only hope that you have the same opportunities in your life as I am having in mine, and even if that

It was when I was visiting my family in the Philippines of summer 2017 where I started to realize how I was taking this climate for granted.

Dear Tomorrow,

It was when I was visiting my family in the Philippines of summer 2017 where I started to realize how I was taking this climate for granted. I went to use at the end of the hall which I was in the room I was staying in I left the light on since I was only going to be gone for a little bit. Though, when I came back I

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

Dear Leia and her future children, I am writing to you all in the year of 2017 - when the consequences of climate change have really took a turn in and around the country we live in. Leia: I am not a perfect mama, nor will I ever be, but I will continue to try my best to teach you everything that will make you a stronger little lady. Even though you’re

Our climate is not being treated fairly and I was too blinded by the materialistic things in life to notice that.

Dear daughter,

The world is changing everyday, whether you can physically see the changes or not. Our climate is not being treated fairly and I was too blinded by the materialistic things in life to notice that. After watching several videos and reading various articles in regards to climate change, I am so so scared for what is yet to come if we continue to upset our planet and its' atmosphere. I

Would there be a future where my future kids will not be able to experience what I did when I was younger?

To whomever,

Honestly speaking, I did not see climate change to be big issue until 4 years ago. I remember when I used to be kid, my parents took me up to the Sierra Nevada to go look at the snow. It was a magically experience. It was something that I always seen in movies and photos but never actually got to see for myself. When my parents told me that we

I took the pledge subliminally to create a project that can create a sustainable structure and prove to reduce the greenhouse gases that are destroying our world now.

Dear future self, dear me,

I took the pledge subliminally to create a project that can create a sustainable structure and prove to reduce the greenhouse gases that are destroying our world now. If I succeeded I want you to keep fighting for it and make it happen. I am 22 years old now. This may be my only chance to save you or to save the planet. And after the succession of this propaganda,

I promise you I will continue to fight even when I am tired and I feel as though there is no point.

Hello future people,

I am sorry we are not doing enough to move towards green energy. It is unfortunate that we have to fight for clean water, greenspace, basic housing and clean environments. Greed has moved humans towards our doom. I have done much to move towards being green. In little ways I have tried to impact my carbon footprint. I use bamboo toothbrushes, I shop local and organic, I drive as little

What was green is now concrete and steel; what was blue is now plastic and oil.

Dear child,

Earth has been our haven and home since the beginning of our existence. It provided us with food, shelter, and protection, allowing us to thrive into the greedy people we are today. We have been torturing this beauty, sucking the life out of everything it has offered us. What was green is now concrete and steel; what was blue is now plastic and oil. We have continuously cut down trees to

I was able to enjoy all these wonderful outdoor adventures and I hope that your future generation will too.

To my future kids,

I hope that by the time you've seen this, the people of this planet will have already been actively working together to battle climate change. I hope that the environment you're living in is one that you can feel safe in, one that doesn't harm your health or cause you pain. The world I live in today isn't perfect but I've gotten to experience so much of what this planet

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

To future Geof,

First of all, turn down the thrusters on your (hopefully) solar-powered jetpack. To read this, I need your full attention, and I hope your attention span got better 33 years from when I'm writing this. I know well-enough that you get distracted easily in things that matter the most; in fact, I could say this about society in my time. Did we get better? Or, is there still media opposition

I will do as much as I can to make sure that you have an amazing life.

To My Future Children,

Today, I am a 21-year-old student at San Jose State University studying meteorology. Learning so much about climate change on a day-to-day basis, I am really worried about the future of our beautiful planet. I hope with all of my heart that this issue will somehow get resolved by the time that you are here enjoying all that life has to offer. As of now, the future of our planet

I'm hoping that at this point in your life, you and your family have reduced your carbon footprint.

Dear future me,

It's not bad to take advantage of the things given to you, but do take into consideration how you take advantage of it. The actions that you make will affect the future, so make wise decisions on how you go about life. I'm hoping that at this point in your life, you and your family have reduced your carbon footprint. I also hope that the world you are living in

These are the small changes that you can make in your lifestyle that will contribute and make a difference.

To my beloved children,

I am so glad that you are reading this message. I hope that you are leading a wonderful life on planet Earth without many problems. When I was the school I learned about how climate change was increasing and that if we didn't attempt to make changes, the future generation will not have a better place to live. Therefore, as a citizen here are the things that I considered or
