Dear Future,

Right now things are intense. With the Coronavirus occurring, most people are in quarantine. Because of this there is mitigation to life in general. As for the environment electricity is being used at an extreme. People are in there homes using their devices. This could also be an effect of environment. Additionally, there is a lot of people cooking which can also be releasing CO2 and constant use of natural gas and other aerosols. Due to this there might be a mitigation, but it can be prevented if there is a limit to the amount being used at home.

I hope that in the future mitigation does not happen where things stop and are barley taking action. I hope there is more renewable and reusable energy sources to prevent mitigation. I hope EVERYONE is using LED lights and cooking environmentally friendly foods to have little to no amounts of carbon footprints. This would help decrease mitigation from happening. I hope there are large amounts of reusable items and that people actually use those items. I hope everyone is considering the things they use and do that may impact the environment.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a water bottle.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will become the change I wish to see in the world.

 

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.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.
