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.

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

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 My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.
