Dear Future Earth,
I promise to promote the growth of clean energy, like solar… For the sake of my grandchildren.
I promise to take shorter showers.
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.
Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.
I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.
Dear Future Me,
I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.
I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!
To my children,
If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.
I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.
I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see
Greetings 2050 earthling,
Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.
Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.
