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.

For my children,

If we haven’t done enough and the world you’re living on is apocalyptic or if you’re living on another planet then I’m deeply sorry and just know that I believe in you and I know that you are both strong and smart enough to handle anything.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

 

Dear Birds,

will continue championing land preservation and the restoration of woodland, prairie and wetland habitats. I will not stop advocating for “bird friendly” legislation to make cities safer for your passage.

 

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 Evan,

We want your future family to enjoy the same beautiful places we enjoyed.

 

dear future people (:

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to drive less and walk more.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

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.

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.
