Dear future me,

I am writing to talk about a factor that affects weather. There are many factor that are causing climate change. One of them is rising sea levels. Sea levels are rising because of ice caps and glaciers melting. This is causing a problem to the cities that are located on the coastlines. They are in danger of going under. Another factor that is making climate change is greenhouse gas effects. Normally the carbon dioxide is something we need. It absorbs the sun’s radiation and keeps us warm. But since the industrial revolution we have been admitting high levels of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This causes more than normal amounts of the carbon dioxide to continue heating up earth instead of being released into space. This is a few of the reasons why climate change is happening.

More Messages to the Future

 

To the People in my Future Life,

Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to take my bike everywhere. Taking Golden Gate Transit to SF tonight.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

To my future children,

Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.
