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

Living in denial cost us our beautiful oceans, snowy mountains, delicious foods and homes.

Dear Tomorrow,

Our world was not always the way it appears now. The world we live in today has changed so much compared to how it used to be. As time passed by, stubborn individuals did not want to take care of our planet. They did not want to believe in climate change or maybe they simply did not care. Living in denial cost us our beautiful oceans, snowy mountains, delicious foods

As I sit here and write to you, I'd like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos - our current home, Earth.

Dear future loved ones,

Today is October 31st, 2017; Halloween in San Jose, California. A time for celebrations of thrilling seeking horror and the irresistible sweet love of candy. Another holiday enjoyed by the companionship of friends and family in the comforts of our home. As I sit here and write to you, I'd like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos - our current home, Earth. Earth has been our

I truly hope this is a transformative time in world history and humanity will be on a better track.

Dear Future People,

Right now, the United States government, under Donald Trump, is denying climate change. They have even cancelled events in which scientists discuss climate change. All of the students and people working in the environmental field, as well as other concerned citizens, are deeply worried about this issue. It is past the point of preventing, we now have to learn to live with our choices and the Trump Administration has just

It is my dream to see countries actively combating climate change and helping one another so that the planet ends up being a sustainable environment for you and your children to live.

To my unborn baby,

I hope in your time the world has come together and put aside its differences to deal with climate change and take collective action. I am only twenty one now, but the leaders of our world have been so stagnant in changing their own ways to fix the climate change issues that we as humans have created. It has been twenty years of empty promises, red tape and conflict that

I will never lose hope, I will never back down, and I will continue to work very hard to do whatever I can for our home. Scientists are mighty.

Dear Charlie, George, and Ryan,

We tried. I have attempted to dedicate my life to turn climate change around, or at least slow it down. I am heartbroken every day thinking of what the future of our beautiful, living, growing planet looks like now. Despite the best efforts of many, the planet will never be the same, regardless of what it looks like now. All I can hope is that this year, 2017, year of Trump

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,
