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.

To the future generations,

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

To My Future Self,

This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.

 

To the Three most Beautiful Souls I could ever Know,

I promise to keep your Love at the forefront of my every move. I will make personal changes and I will learn more, so that I can contribute to a healthier environment in a meaningful way.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I have solar and will be getting an electric car next week

 

Dear Peyton and Lucas,

I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!
