Dear Child,

The year is 2020 and climate change is getting worse and worse. The government has taken little to no action towards helping the stop global warming and climate change. In Baltimore, the air pollution is terrible and there is trash all over the city. Back at home in New York, sea levels are rising rapidly due to global warming and climate change and as a result, the Hudson River often floods.

A big problem is our use and consumption of plastic and there is not much being done to help minimize these numbers. We need to minizmize the use of plastic because these toxins from it are getting into the water harming humans and animal life. I have been trying my best to minimize my use of plastic by not buying plastic water bottles, I recently purchases a Brita water bottle to ensure my water is filtered no matter where I get it from.

Another change I have been trying to make is when I go to the store, I try to bring my own reusable bags instead of using the plastic ones, or if I am getting a few items,I dont take a bag at all. The last major change I have been trying to make is to obtain as little plastic as possible, by this I mean not accepting plastic utensils at take out places and reusing the plastic containers I do get instead of throwing them out.

Little changes like this can go a long way. I hope that by the time you are grown, this issue is in the process of being resolved and that these basic solutions are enforced regularly by everyone. I hope that our future political leaders take these matters seriously and make it a goal to make a positive change.

More Messages to the Future


Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.



Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…


To my grandchildren,

Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.


To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?


Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.


Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.


Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.


Dear Leo,

Last week I took you to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.


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 Matthew, Sam, and Sophie,

There is a promise in the Bible: ‘I shall restore the years that the locusts have eaten’ and that points to a promise of complete healing and restoration. But until that comes I intend to do my best to ‘save the planet’ in whatever way I can, and I encourage you to do the same.


Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.


Dear future me,

My hopes have always been to live in a brighter and better generation, where women are respected around the world, human rights are respected and last but not least where animals and mother nature is cared for by us individuals.
