Dear child,

I hope when you read this the world is already on the course of clean energy, living smart and environment impact awareness. I hope by now we have battled through the question of if  climate change is happening and it was accepted as something that needs our highest attention and action. I hope and deeply believe in year 2030 and beyond there will be no more forces that deny caring for our earth and our climate.

In year 2015 a very important agreement between all countries was reached. It was Paris agreement where all countries agreed to decrease their carbon and CO2 emissions. However lots of unwanted anti climate things happened in politics the next year: Brexit vote in Britain and Donald Trump elected for the U.S president. Both political forces behind those events are very hostile to protecting the environment and fighting climate change. To the contrary those forces are supporting traditional methods of producing energy and continue to rely on fossil fuels, not caring about 97% scientists consensus that climate change is happening as we speak now and we need to act now before it’s too late. There are also other political events looming in the near future that could worsen the situation if populist politicians in important European countries like Netherland, France and Germany win the election.

Luckily there is a huge international community and climate change ambassadors and real fighters like Leonardo di Caprio that give us hope and don’t stop the fight.

We have more and more natural distasters that are pushing people out of their land, countries and livelihood. This is causing wars to break out between countries sometimes, followed by huge migrations which again cause political tensions in rich countries where people migrate.

The idea is that if each of us on the planet just does little bit to decrease their CO2 emission we will see very bright future and stop the negative climate change.

Your mum and I decided to go vegan. We think this is the best you can do because animal agriculture is the biggest contributor to climate change because of methane gas emission. This gas is way more dangerous and harmful than CO2. Unfortunately not many people are talking about it but we keep spreading the word. Big food business is not allowing this to become wide public knowledge and keeps harming the forests, animals and people.

We also decided to switch to the clean energy provider, a company called Octopus :). They produce their energy purely from sun and wind. Prices are much lower but again UK government is trying to destroy clean energy business through very high taxes. But we don’t give up. We keep lobbying our MPs, signing petitions, spreading the word, convincing our family and friends to change their life style, energy providers and consumption.

The fight is on. I hope when you read it is over and won and you live in clean, smart .

Love,

Kuba&Joyce

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Dear Future Earth,

I promise to promote the growth of clean energy, like solar… For the sake of my grandchildren.

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

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 Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,

I commit to demanding that politicians that want my vote, my time, my substantial help and expertise are people who seek to address climate change seriously and talk about it boldly.

 

Dear You Tomorrow,

What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.
