Dear Future Me,

So far, this year’s average temperature is 64.8 degrees Fahrenheit! Winter still hasn’t ended yet! That is insane for St. Louis, Missouri. We have already had two severe storms from February 28 – March 6th. They both consisted of tornado touchdowns throughout Missouri. This doesn’t look good for this summer. We need to make a change. We need to slow down global warming by a lot to get back to a stable climate. There have been more hurricanes in 2016 than what I remember. Because of global warming caused by fossil fuels, the Earth gets hot because of the Carbon Dioxide build up in the atmosphere which causes the sun’s rays to get trapped inside Earth. Heat powers storms, so when the Earth heats up more and more, that causes more storms and powerful storms. Our world is in danger, we need to end climate change or we will cook like turkey in an oven. Let’s all work together to end climate change. I promise to keep the Earth clean and to plant more trees and switch to green energy. Let’s make a change!

Sincerely,

Aiden H

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

dear future people (:

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.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

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.

 

Dear Gabriel,

A message from co-founder Jill Kubit:
Writing letters to our kids about climate change is hard. It should be.

 

Dear… Parents,

Let us teach our children to volunteer and donate.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.
