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

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

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.

 

Dear future child,

We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.

 

Dear Madeleine,

First of all I hope we succeeded in our dream that yours is a better world than the world of 2021. Today, the forests are burning, the sea levels are rising and wild weather is everywhere. But we are working hard and I’m confident we will succeed.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?

 

To my precious children,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

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.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

Quiero que puedas decirme que lo hemos logrado, y que el mundo hoy es un poquito mejor porque nosotras pusimos de nuestra parte.

 

Dear Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.
