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 me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise composting in my house and getting an EV for my first car.

 

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise when I start my baking franchise, I will reduce pollution made by it as much as physically possible.

 

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.

 

To the Three most Beautiful Souls I could ever Know,

I promise to keep your Love at the forefront of my every move. I will make personal changes and I will learn more, so that I can contribute to a healthier environment in a meaningful way.

 

People of tomorrow,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.
