Dear Future Self,

It’s hard to imagine you reading this 30 years from now. I guess that means that the human race has not succumb to the 6th great extinction event as a result of climate change, so that’s good news! As I write to you from 2020, things are pretty grim. With numerous natural disasters, melting ice caps, perpetually polluted air and water accompanied by leaders that not only refuse to combat climate change, but deny its existence entirely, we are headed downhill fast. There is not a single doubt in my mind that climate change is real and is an imminent threat. I’m doing what I can to lessen my impact, reducing my own wast and energy usage and figuring out ways to live more sustainably, and I hope others are too, but there is always MORE. I know that if we stop emissions right now, you would likely still be feeling the effects in 2050. But I hope that is the case and emissions do not just continue to stack up and make it hard for you to clearly see those beautiful Rocky Mountains. I hope to ensure you a lifetime of hiking, climbing, and fishing and healthy places to do those in.

So here’s to you, with hope and determination!

More Messages to the Future

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

To my Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Hola Cariño,

Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

 

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.
