Dear Future Generations,

In 2019, I am scared for the future. I am afraid that my generation and the generations before me are continuing to ruin the environment to the point of no return. Currently, the U.S. is one of the main countries that are contributing to the pollution of Earth. Right now I am living in San José, California where the population is increasing each year and is resulting in an increase in energy usage. In today’s government, there are many politicians who believe that our planet is not in danger. Also, many individuals continue to ignore the fact that global warming is a myth and refuse to take action.

Currently, there are people who are trying to find ways that we can reduce the use of natural gases and oil. Unfortunately, the U.S. heavily depends on natural gases and oil and does not want to support renewable energy. Maybe later in the future, there will be a time where people will make renewable energy affordable and easy to access. I hope that by the year 2050 there is only renewable energy being used and oil is no longer the main source for energy consumption. I hope that the only cars that will exist are powered by renewable energy.

However, I still have hope. And I hope that you look at the world in 2050 and breathe in clean air, experience playing in the snow, and know that polar bears and other animals are not extinct. I hope that my generation and the past generation were able to fix our issues and that the world is in better condition. I hope that you are reading in your history textbooks about how everyone got together despite their differences and cleaned up their polluting habits. I wish that in the future there will be forests and that children will be breathing fresh clean air and drinking clean water in all countries.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

My darlings, Juno & Vaeda,

You ask insightful questions, and together we learn about the mysterious world we inhabit.

 

Dear Emile and Eloise,

The beauty and majesty of the world of your childhood is as remarkable as the beauty and majesty of mine, but the fragility of your childhood world is so much greater.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise when I start my baking franchise, I will reduce pollution made by it as much as physically possible.

To my dearest Gabriel,
