Dear Future Self,

I never learned about climate change in detail ever before this year. Both in terms of theoretical and actually seeing what’s happening around us. Human beings are destroying this beautiful natural environment just for their own short term benefit. We know that we are doing bad to this environment and we also have some resources to stop this harm. However, we are not developing enough technology or taking the initiative to stop harming our environment.

After learning how much negative impact that we are having on this planet, and seeing all that happening around me (wildfires in California and Australia, hurricanes in southern states of America, etc), I promise to myself that I will do whatever is in my power to contribute for reducing this impact. I can change my lifestyle for using more eco-friendly products, saving energy, eating food that has lower carbon footprint, etc. I believe that if everyone in this world start taking initiative at individual level, we are not far away from a day when we can actually control this climate change on global level.

For my own future as well for the future generations, I will try as best as I can to mitigate the damage that we are doing to the land that belong to someone else (future generations).

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.

 

Olá Pessoal,

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.
