Dear future Phoebe,

I hope that you remember 2018 as the year that wildfires wreaked havoc in California, that hurricanes devastated communities in NC and FL, and that a tsunami killed hundreds in Indonesia. But I also beseech you to remember it also as the year you learned not to be despondent, fatalistic, and nihilistic. I hope you remember 2018 as the year you learned to identify problems and analyze the relationship between man and earth. Dum spiro, spero. Carthage delenda est.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.

 

Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Future Me,

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

 

Querida Alê,

Por você idealizei um mundo melhor e lutei incessantemente por ele.

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise composting in my house and getting an EV for my first car.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.

 

Dear Owen and Vivian,

Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.

 

I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.
