Dear Cole Beliveau,

I am writing to you, Cole, as an 18 year old version of yourself. It is 2019 and our world is in an overwhelming sense of urgency to save our planet from the climate crisis. My main goal in this message, is to ask you what have you done to help this cause? Decades later when you’re hopefully reading this message you can smile and say I have changed the world, even if it was in a small way. I also hope you can read this with satisfaction that many others have taken initiative to change our world for the better, as it is going to be a team effort nonetheless. I don’t want to pain you with a huge article, so I would like to keep it short and sweet. Currently, I am trying as much as possible to reduce my carbon footprint. Although I will never likely give up meat, I plan to eat and live a healthy lifestyle by eating local, protecting our environment, and simply try to make this world a better place. That is all I will leave you with, and always remember to be the best version of yourself, and help end this crisis.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

Dear Ryan,

I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

 

Dear Nephew,

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

 

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 Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.
