Dear Future Self,

You are currently in 2020 with a pandemic going on. The world is crazy right now and you are currently trapped in the house, kind of going insane, but keeping it together. I really miss the outside world! Everyone is keeping a 6 feet distance from each other and staying inside their home. It is a sad time, but on a positive note, mother nature is thriving.

Since the majority of everyone is staying indoors, there is less driving, not many people traveling and no cruises/boats. This is showing a major change throughout the world. With people not being able to work and man factories closing down for quarantine, there is less air pollution. Some countries can finally see sights that they have not seen in a while. The fog has finally stopped covering the beautiful views. It is insane to see the major impact human activities have on climate change. We are the problem with climate change and after a month or more of being on lockdown around the world, the change has been tremendous towards mother nature. Carbon dioxide emissions have been decreased due to COVID.

I hope by 2050, by the time I receive this letter, we had helped the Earth tremendously. I hope to see us decrease the emission of greenhouse gases. I will promise to take action by reusing my bag whenever I go grocery shopping. I will be more mindful of everything I do. I will put more thought into transportation and continue to carpool. I will try my best to help make the Earth be better, safer, and healthy.

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.


Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will eat vegan, organic, locally grown, and seasonal.


Annalu minha filha amada,

Espero de coração que, no futuro, você possa olhar para trás e se orgulhar muito dos pais que teve.


Minhas lindas,

As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.


To my dear son,

Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.


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 Tomorrow,

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


Dear Yasmine,

I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.


Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?


Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.


Dear Ryan,

I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.


Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.
