dear future self,

I hope this reaches you by about 2050. Honestly, there is a chance that climate change got really bad and you can never get back on this website, or that you died. But I doubt that. If you are still kicking I hope for you that the world is still functioning somewhat normally. I hope you are taking a shower once a week, I hope you are still having to replace AA batteries, and I really hope that you are paying taxes with paper money. I hope that at this point either climate change has been solved or everyone has given up on it. 30 years of hoping is a life wasted.
