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 Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.
