Dear Future Self:

Hello, and glad that you are receiving this letter long after it has initially had been written! Whether you are my future self or someone else who had found this letter, I hope I can share my thoughts with you the reader regarding the state of things, particularily regarding climate change.

I really hope things are better in terms of progress on climate change. In 2018, climate change is still something that we are fighting an uphill battle on. We have an administration that took us out of the Paris Climate Accords, causing America to lag behind other major nations on climate change and environmentalism. We have an EPA director in bed with lobbyists and special interest groups and is trying to lax laws strict on polluters and carbon emitters. We have many politicians on the GOP side literally bought and owned by the Koch Brothers and other big chemical companies.

So yeah, it’s a tiring, bruising uphill fight. But I hope that I am writing to you from a place of hope, not cynicism. I have taken action to fight for this cause I believe in. I volunteer in the community parks (such as the Guadalupe Parks) and help with planting flowers and trees. I joing advocacy groups that protest, educate people and get involved in various environmental intiatives to help the public understand the threat we face.

I hope that the situation has gotten better. I’m an eternal optimist and liked to believe that my work has made a difference. If yes, it is up to you to keep at this. Progress never comes easy and can be reversed or squadered as easily as achieved. If it hasn’t, you need to push even harder. Seek to educate your children, extended family and friends regarding this situation. It is imperative you get on this so that society, the environment and the world at large is a safe place to live. One can only imagine what would happen if no substantial progress is made on this front.

Best wishes and godspeed,

Me

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

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 Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Oh My Lovely Faizan,

I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.
