Dear Emma,

I fear where you may be right now. I have seen how the climate is affecting people now and if we keep traveling on our perilous path I can’t imagine how it will affect people by 2050. Lands are of the verge of drowning, an entire continent is in flames, and drought-borne wars are plaguing the Middle East. I can imagine how this can grow apocalyptic by 2050. Of course, I can also see myself doing fine in such a dangerous world, but I do not wish for you to be there. Not that you can’t handle it, you attack me all the time so I know that you can put up a fight if you had to. I just don’t want you to have to be there. I will work endlessly to mend the human relationship with Nature, whom we have separated ourselves from long by now. Hopefully, I can help make so that we have the same range of impact on Earth as the rest of life. Then, if all goes well you and many others can share a relationship with nature that is much more healthy than the one we share now. I’m in my first year of college and I am learning and building plans that will help me fight this climate crisis. Hopefully, the future will be full of flying, environmentally savvy vehicles and hover boards, self drying clothing, pizzas that you can hydrate and cook from small to large in a matter of seconds, and maybe a DeLorean, instead of high seas, drought, fire, and war.

Your Brother,

Wyatt Day

More Messages to the Future

 

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?

 

Oh My Lovely Faizan,

I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

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.

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

Dear Me of 2050,

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

 

To my dear son,

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.

 

Dear Tristan,

I am doing this to protect you, the food, water, air and biodiversity of a country that I love.

 

Querido amanhã,

Sempre é bom ajudar a natureza.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

Dear Future,

We need to work to save our beautiful home.
