Dear Future Generations,

We are living on a planet where the snow and ice are melting, the sea levels are rising, there is an increase in warmer days (heat waves), and a decrease in cooler days due to anthropogenic emissions. We have caused the temperature to increase, and the changes in climate. It is time for the human population to take immediate action and make changes, so we can potentially live on a healthy planet. Our future generations deserve to live on a planet where they are able to see snow and enjoy the fresh air. I am hoping we continue to move forward with renewable energy, including wind, solar, and hydropower, so we can stop depending on fossil fuels and other non-renewables for energy. I hope we will be using 100% renewable energy before or in the year of 2050. On the other note, we can take the first step to reducing our energy usage by unplugging appliances and turning off lights when it is not in use, line drying clothes outside, and simply switching to environmentally friendly light bulbs. In addition, we can ride bicycles and scooters, walk, or take the bus to reduce our carbon footprint on transportation. By taking these small steps, it will eventually become bigger steps to improving our environment. We are given one planet to live on, so we should take better care of it.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

To my children,

I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will use less fossil fuels.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Future

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.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.
