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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to never use a plastic straw.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.

 

Dear James,

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

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

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.

 

Dear Tom and Leena,

I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a reusable water bottle.

 

Rachel and Noelle,

I hope in a small way this helps your world.
