Dear children,

Global warming is real and we’ve seen the effects of it through aggressive natural disasters and sea level rise. It is too bad that we currently have a president who refuses to take a look at the science and see that his ignorance is just allowing for further destruction. I am well aware of climate change, and I promise that I will spread this knowledge to people who are not as aware. Knowledge is so powerful because it causes one to step back and see things for how they really are, which then leads to action. I make sure to tell my parents all about global warming, which it has caused them to switch over to a diet that consists of chicken and turkey over beef. I will also be more aware of the carbon footprint that I leave by eating less beef and finding more efficient ways of transportation. Hopefully, we can all come together so that you are still able to visit the beautiful coasts of somewhere like Florida or witness a giant glacier in Alaska.

More Messages to the Future

 

I pledge to stop using plastic bags.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Caro Giovanni,

Dobbiamo aiutare nel conservare il bello che c’è nel nostro pianeta.

 

Dear me,

Remember how passionate you felt at 20, I hope you keep that passion in you and are still working on climate 30 years from now.

 

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 Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

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,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.

 

Caro me stesso,

Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
