Dear Future Braden,

I am talking to you about greenhouse gases. The greenhouse gas I am doing is methane. 27% of human sources comes from livestock and their waste. If you are wondering how the heck a greenhouse gas works then here’s how “warming of the lower atmosphere of the earth that occurs when radiation from the sun is absorbed by the earth and then given off again and absorbed by carbon dioxide and water vapor in the atmosphere.” I got these straight from my notes. So to shrink it a little all this is saying is heat is being trapped in the lower atmosphere and is being absorbed by CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) and water vapors. So that is how greenhouse gases work. Quick fact: The deforestation rate know is 1.3% each year, hopefully, it has lowered. We cannot get past 2 degrees celsius or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Your welcome.

Sincerely,

Braden R

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.

 

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.

 

Greetings 2050 earthling,

Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.

I promise to recycle and compost.

 

Dear Yasmine,

I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

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.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

To anyone who has heard my music,

I promise to care about the planet.
