Dear Future Generations,

I hope all is well with what you’re dealing with environmentally. I can’t imagine the magnitude of what you all may be facing in the years to come. As of now, it is November of 2017. I’m currently 19 and living within the city of Chicago. Currently, our world is in an unsustainable place due to the United States government, under Donald Trump, who is denying climate change’s existence. The government have even cancelled events in which scientists discuss climate change. All of the students and people working in the environmental field, as well as other concerned citizens, are deeply worried about this issue.We are now past the point of no return, we must learn to live with our choices and the Trump Administration has just put us four steps backwards. I hope by the time someone sees this in 2050, this will no longer be an issue and the public, as well as the government, will be on the same side, battling climate change and doing everything we can to stop it. I truly hope this is a transformative time in world history and humanity will be on a better track. However, we have a long way ahead of us and environmentally concerned people, such as myself, are working very hard to make people aware and get this process started because the choices we are making right now are not sustainable for the future. I do hope the choices you make within the society you live in are for the better of the world and not just yourself. As of now were are reaching the threshold of two degrees celsius above normal temperatures. I hope that by the time you’re reading this, the temperature has stagnated and ceased to increase substantially. Climate change is more than just a political and social issue, but it’s also a survival issue. I wish you the best, and to really appreciate what you have in terms of your environment because someday it may also cease to exist.

Thanks,

Alexander Pekar

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear future generations,

Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening.

 

Dear Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

 

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:

 

Dear Logan,

I am working every second of my life, with every ounce of my being, to ensure that I am leaving you and your brother a planet that is safe and secure.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

To my grandchildren,

Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear People Of The Future,

It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.
