Dear Future Self,

It’s 2019 and climate change has had a large effect over many people in many different forms. Climate change caused by fossil fuels and Carbon Dioxide Emissions. Scientists believe that climate change has been melting glaciers in the arctic and in Antarctica and causing many natural disasters such as large hurricanes. Recently, the Amazon, the world’s largest rainforest has been burning to increase land for farmers and industrial companies. Sea levels have been rising and coastlines have diminished. Many people still disregard climate change and if we don’t do anything to stop it soon, it will have catastrophic irreversible effects on our planet.

More Messages to the Future

 

To earth & its inhabitants,

Its been heavy on my shoulders since I found out about the state of climate woes as a child.

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

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 James,

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

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.

 

Dear future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…
