Dear adventurer,

I’m writing this letter in Chicago, Illinois on November 7th, 2016, one of the warmest November days I’ve ever experienced. Weather patterns and temperatures have probably gotten more intense for you, but I hope that through it all you’ve been safe and comfortable despite the difficulties. Climate change is something that’s been on my mind for a while now – a few years ago, I got interested in environmental science, and have since declared a major in environmental studies. I’ve been vegetarian for two months and don’t plan on stopping, and have had countless conversations about the importance of sustainable practices. Days upon days have been spent outdoors and in nature. All of this is due to the appreciation, respect, and awe I have for our planet and its natural wonder, in all of its capability and beauty. I hope you feel the same way. Nowadays it seems like there aren’t many people who care enough to drive the communal change we need to have a big enough impact, but I’m optimistic that they’ll come to their senses one way or another. I guess you know if they did. Personally, I’m working on reducing my ecological footprint by any means possible and will continue to do so over the next five years. So far the biggest lifestyle change is the lack of meat eating – hopefully bigger ones are to come, for me and others. It is my hope that the world will be able to come together over this issue, and that this letter reaches you as the world finds success together. We’ll see.

All the best,
Alex

More Messages to the Future

 

To my Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

To my Maria and her children,

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

 

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear… Parents,

Let us teach our children to volunteer and donate.
