Carta para los hijos del mundo,

Hijos, algunos de ustedes hoy tienen menos de 15 años de edad, en otros casos aun no han nacido y al igual que la humanidad hay muchas cosas que desconocen.

Cuánto hemos avanzado en los últimos 150 años de desarrollo industrial! Hemos llegado a niveles de desarrollo formidables, los cuales tal vez no habrían sido posibles sin sacrificar parte de nuestra amada naturaleza. Pero gracias a esto hemos llegado a un punto en el que este sacrificio nos ha permite hoy en día tener la capacidad de entender y cambiar lo hemos venido haciendo, para convertirnos en habitantes sustentables y responsables del único hogar que conocemos hasta el momento. Es importante recordar que a pesar de todos nuestros avances, hoy en día somos prácticamente la misma sociedad que la de hace 1000 o inclusive 2000 años atrás, en materia de acciones aplicadas para la conservación del ambiente.

No es una tarea fácil de llevar a cabo, se requiere de mucha capacidad intelectual y visión para entender lo que está pasando y lo que podría suceder en los próximos años, pero se requiere de aun mas dones para explicarlo y hacer entender a otros esta visión.

Hoy en día no lo hemos logrado, a pesar de grandes esfuerzos de personas en todos los niveles no hemos logrado el nivel de conciencia y educación de la humanidad necesarios para hacer sustentable nuestro desarrollo y por lo tanto la supervivencia de nuestra especia durante los siglos venideros, sin embargo podemos decir que si hemos empezado y que por muy pequeña que sea, existe una esperanza de que podemos lograrlo. Hará falta mucho mas esfuerzo y el tiempo dirá si podremos disminuir y revertir el daño que estamos haciendo hoy en día o al menos mantener nuestra especie libre de la extinción hasta q podamos llegar a otro planeta donde pueda vivir nuestra especie y tal vez salvar a algunos de ustedes.

Creo que hay dos aspectos en los que debemos trabajar fuerte hoy en día para avanzar en los objetivos planteados, si para el momento en que lean este mensaje ya han alcanzado ambos es porque, desde mi punto de vista, ya tienen las bases para lograr avances aun más importantes:

1.- Debemos formalizar el concepto de “conciencia y/o inteligencia global” de la humanidad viendo la humanidad como un organismo único y entero para poder estudiar y cronologizar nuestro comportamiento y así establecer un plan de acción que permita mejorar nuestras capacidades y habilidades intelectuales de manera global.

2.- Es importante hacer entender a la mayoría de las personas que no importa la cantidad de dinero ni bienes que podamos tener y dejar! Si no dejamos la enseñanza para parar el calentamiento global, el aumento del nivel de los mares, la disminución de reservas de agua dulce y la contaminación de los mares, entre otros, no existirá lugar en el planeta donde ustedes podrán vivir mejor de lo que nosotros lo hacemos hoy y será aun peor para las subsiguientes generaciones. No tiene sentido seguir dejando bienes que nunca podrán ser disfrutados como lo hacemos hoy día, debido a que son obtenidos de manera insostenible.

Tal vez se pregunten que pueden hacer ustedes para ayudar verdaderamente a producir un cambio, pues la verdad es que cualquier cosa que hagan cada vez que puedan me hará sentirme orgulloso de ustedes y de que este mensaje logró algo.

No queda mas que pedir disculpas por la herencia que les hemos dejado, un mundo y un hogar en destrucción y decadencia, que ni las mas grandes cantidades de dinero podrán reparar sin el pasar de muchas generaciones. Espero que al menos la experiencia y enseñanzas que han dejado tantos años de deterioro, sepamos transmitirla y mantener la esperanza que tenemos hoy en día de un mundo mejor para nuestras futuras generaciones

La abundancia con ignorancia genera escasez. La escasez con conocimientos genera abundancia.


English version:

Children, today some of you have less than 15 years old, in other cases you have not born yet and like humanity there are many things that you don’t know.

How far we have advanced in the last 150 years of industrial development! We have arrived at formidable levels of development, which perhaps would not have been possible without sacrificing part of our beloved nature, but thanks to this we have reached a point where this sacrifice has allowed us today to have the ability to understand and change what we have been doing, to become in sustainable and responsible habitants for the only home we know so far. It is important to remember that despite all our advances, today we are practically the same society as the one of 1000 or even 2000 years ago, in the matter of actions applied for the conservation of the environment.

It is not an easy task to carry out, it requires a lot of intellectual capacity and vision to understand what is happening and what could happen in the next few years, but it requires even more gifts to explain it and make others understand this vision. Today we have not succeeded, despite great efforts of people at all levels, we have not achieved the level of humanity’s consciousness and education necessary to make sustainable our development and therefore the survival of our spice for the next centuries, however we can say that we have started and there is a hope that we can achieve it. It will take much more effort and time will tell if we can decrease and reverse the damage we are doing today or at least keep our species free of extinction until we can reach another planet where our species can live, and may be safe some of you.

I believe that there are two aspects in which we must work hard today to advance with the objectives, if by the time you read this message have already reached both is because, in my view, already have the bases to achieve progress even more important:

1.- We must formalize the concept of “global consciousness and / or intelligence” of humanity seeing humanity as a single and entire organism, to be able to study and chronologize our behavior and thus establish a plan of action that allows us to improve our intellectual abilities and abilities in a global manner.

2.- It is important to make the majority of people understand that no matter how much money or goods we can have and leave, if we do not leave the teaching to stop global warming, rising sea levels, declining freshwater reserves and pollution of the seas, among others, there will be no place on the planet where you can live better than we do today and it will be even worse for the subsequent generations. It doesn’t make sense to continue leaving assets that can never be enjoyed as we do today, because they are obtained in an unsustainable way.

You may wonder what you can do to truly help bring a change, the truth is that anything you do whenever you can, will make me proud of you and that this message achieved something.

There is nothing more than apologize for the inheritance that we have left, a world and a home in destruction and decay, which even the largest amounts of money cannot repair without the passing of many generations. I hope that at least the experience and teachings that have left so many years of deterioration, we know how to transmit it and maintain the hope we have today for a better world for our future generations.

Abundance with ignorance generates shortage. Shortage with knowledge generates abundance.

More Messages to the Future


For my children,

If we haven’t done enough and the world you’re living on is apocalyptic or if you’re living on another planet then I’m deeply sorry and just know that I believe in you and I know that you are both strong and smart enough to handle anything.


Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?


My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.


Dear Tomorrow,

I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.


Dear future loved ones,

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 Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.


Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.


Dear next generation,

Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.


Dear future child whatever your name is,

Climate change right now is really bad, I’m writing this during the COP26 conference in Glasgow (which is an hour away) and I’m listening to politicians talking about promises for the future. “If we fail, future generations will never forgive us.” -Boris Johnson


Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.


Dear Hannah, Harper and future baby of Ryan and Colleen Lane,

I will not stop fighting for a more sustainable future, your future.


Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I’ll replace our lights with LED lights.
