Dear future,

I hope there is a future, and that we have been better at taking care of our home. The world today is pretty bad to the environment, and as I learn more in class I see that at the pace we are going our world will be nothing in the future. I hope we have gotten better at limiting our carbon emissions and aerosols. I hope that there is more electric vehicles and that the factories have gone green. I want my future family to live in a world where the world is very green and natural resources are not exploited. I hope people have changed their ways and tried to limit their carbon footprint, so there is a future to write to.

Sincerely,
A present green student

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear me,

Remember how passionate you felt at 20, I hope you keep that passion in you and are still working on climate 30 years from now.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

People of tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Future Me,

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.

 

To the future generations,

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!
