Dear future me,

In 2016, the increase of the world’s average temp is 1.69*F. I’m sure it has gotten higher from now to then, but it might have gotten lower, after it got higher. By now you would have started your/our/my business. Then hopefully gotten everything under control, and made movies. (Ya know, the dude in a suit, cool guns, demons? Or the other one about the guys in suits with the V visors?)

Because it’s getting hotter, wildfires burn down more trees, which releases carbon into the air, and takes away more trees (which means that there are fewer plants to take away carbon,) and more carbon makes it hotter. There is the same problem with ice, where if some ice melts because it’s getting hotter, then it will make other ice more susceptible to melting, and ice reflects heat, so less ice means more heat.

I think that by the time this letter gets to you, there will be tons of plans to fix climate change, because otherwise your world will have a lot of problems. To help do the little you can, maybe you could buy an electric car that is powered by sunlight, or convert most of you power for the company sunlight/wind (cheaper).

 

Sincerely,

Maddox K.

More Messages to the Future

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear X—, Dear A—,

As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Dear Future Me,

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

 

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.

 

Dear future love,

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.

 

Dear next generation,

I hope that by the time you’re reading this, things have changed and people have started to protect the earth

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.
