Dear future relatives,

I am currently writing this letter in the year 2020. There are still people who don’t believe in global warming. Some who do believe in it unfortunately think that not being environmentally concerned is a form of freedom that they deserve. Many people have little regard for the treatment of the earth and how that will affect every living thing in the future. I hope that in the future that legislation and new technology has made it more possible to preserve our earth for those in your future. I predict that it will get to a very low point where everyone will have no option but to take climate change seriously. I hope that one day politics and economics are not restrictors to the health of the earth, because if that is the case then the earth won’t be that wonderful decades to come. I really hope that in the future, greenhouse gas emissions are lowered and deforestation is significantly decreased (creating more trees than destroyed), and I also hope that people are more environmentally aware. I think that things will get worse before they get better, but I really do hope that one day humanity can make up for its destruction.  Good luck.

More Messages to the Future

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).

 

Dear Tristan,

I am doing this to protect you, the food, water, air and biodiversity of a country that I love.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Dear Future,

I will use less plastic.

 

Dear friend,

I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope.

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

Oi Luc,

Estou esperando ansiosa sua chegada pra que a gente possa fazer muitas coisas boas juntos, uma delas, é cuidar bem do nosso planeta.
