Dear children, grandchildren or maybe even great grandchildren,

I don’t really care how long it took for you to find this message but now that you have I guess it’s probably the most important thing. I am writing this on the 5th of March 2017 aged 14 at home in Malta.

I’m sorry if I won’t be able to provide much information on my life but this is more of an apology message just in case my generation doesn’t solve climate change. All I can say is please forgive me and most of my generation for this. We made some mistakes such as electing the 45th president of the USA to be Donald Trump who at the current time doesn’t seem to be doing much for the planet and not pushing ourselves off fossil fuels.

I want you to know that I SINCERELY want you to grow up in a clean GREEN world where we’re finally 100%clean energy. I am sincerely hoping this letter finds you in a world like this. I am taking part in this movement because right here right now I am doing my best for you.

In 2017 we’re still not green and far from it. Some (please forgive me for the language) bastards that run companies which are dependent on fossil fuels and therefore global warming are pushing back the progress of the people that push towards a green, good future. I still have a life ahead of me and I might even have a chance to see this letter myself in the future but all I can say is that a world where the current majority of fossil fuel dependent people want to continue living in is hardly a world at all. Bastards.

But the true evil is not the people who consume the fossil fuels but the people who continue to provide them. My children please do your best to save our planet and therefore yourselves and human kind along with all our animal brothers. Please help humanity get through this “rough patch” and help lengthen our existence. I want to say that I love you all even though I may not be there to say it or just don’t do at times I do.

Take care. With you always.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my future Niece,

While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise composting in my house and getting an EV for my first car.

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I promise my next vehicle will be an EV.

 

Dear Eleanor,

You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.

 

Dear Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

Dear Erica and Matthew,

I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.
