My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

Dear Future

The date is November 5, 2017. The way things are right now, have me worried for the year to come. Our government officials refuse to see how our civilization is slowly killing our planet, and refuse to take action to stop it. Our air is becoming more polluted day by day and our oceans seem to be more plastic than water. These things although terrifying are not the end. I believe that we can still turn things around. I hope for those living in the future coal and oil burning is a thing only read about in books, and new forms or energy production like solar and wind, maybe even something us in 2017 can’t even imagine are what fuel your civilization. As someone living in such a time of uncertainty I can only hope the rest of my generation and those after mine can take control and lead our world into the better future that you may be living in now. I will do my part and help others do theirs, I hope it is enough.

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.

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.

I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.

 

Dear Resident of 14 Back Road in Dover, NH

Twenty-nine years from now I hope you are looking at the property and seeing the mature results of this effort. These plants, shrubs and trees will all help to pull CO2 from the air.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

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.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

Dear Jeremy,

We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.
