Dear future generations to come,

I’m sorry for not trying enough to protect Earth’s climate…

Currently, 2019 is the year I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth. For any normal person, it is important to treat the world with respect by knowing and understanding the ranges and limits Earth can provide for ourselves. Unfortunately, there are people that are shadowed by lust for greed who feel that harming Earth will gain them complete control on the economy. Because of the negative influence these people will have on the climate, it is important for all of us to make the Earth a better place to live during the difficult times you will face in the future.

By the time this message reaches, there will be noticeable changes in the temperature in your surroundings. Not only will the increase in temperature will not only feel unbearable for those who have not adjusted to living in hotter environments, but it will affect the output of many goods such as crops and other required products to ensure our survival. With climate change on the rise, many people will have to be relocated because their homes are susceptible to changes in the environment. Because of this, people living near rising tides or on top of glacial ice will be forced to move to more tolerable regions where they will have a hard time to adapt. Even though it is more likely that my generation will continue to let this happen, it is important for future generations to let their voices be heard through widespread communication and voting. While this has only partially worked in my time, I feel that it will have a positive impact as more people begin to realize that the Earth’s climate is changing for the worse.

As I continue to live my life as a working adult, I often think about how much future generations will have to suffer through the mess my generation has made. These are often bad thoughts and feelings of regret that I know that I myself cannot fix. And if I am being brutally honest, none of this would affect me in the future knowing that I will someday die due to age in the future. With these negative thoughts in my mind, I hope that the future will have a better sense of hope and willingness to make a difference in Earth’s climate change. Small differences like reducing energy usage could help, but it won’t make any global impacts unless the entire population takes part. Ultimately, when you grow up in the future, I hope you will understand the pain and suffering we have put you through. Just promise me that you will become Earth’s saviors unlike myself.

Only you can make the difference.

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.
