Dear Future Me,

I am writing this as an update of where we are now and as a sounding board for what I hope we will achieve in the coming year. Global climate change has begun to take such drastic effect that it is now both tangible and visible for people in many different parts of the world. As it continues to hurt people’s lives, we, as a population, do not seem to be doing nearly enough to actually aid the problem. Far too often people post about and talk about climate change without actually altering their daily regimens or doing anything substantial to aid the problem. I hope, in the coming years, people will begin to alter their own individual actions in order to reduce waste, the production of fossil fuels, etc. in addition to contributing to the problem on a group/national scale. I would love to see some effective changes to U.S. law on the front of climate change and do not see that as an unreasonable hope for the future.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

Isabelle minha querida neta!

Nossa vida só tem qualidade se tem natureza ao nosso redor.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

Dear future 82-year old me,

29 years later, I wish I still can ride bike and go some lovely places in nature. Sky is blue and air is fresh, I will be shining under the sun.

 

Dear Madeleine,

First of all I hope we succeeded in our dream that yours is a better world than the world of 2021. Today, the forests are burning, the sea levels are rising and wild weather is everywhere. But we are working hard and I’m confident we will succeed.

 

Dear Future Me,

I hope that when we look back on these years,  you’ll see that humanity can be good. That we joined together and fixed it because of we don’t, who will?

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Dear Nafia,

I also hope that your previous prayers have been answered. The way you wanted to create green jobs for your fellow city dwellers have been fulfilled already.

 

To older Rochelle,

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