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).

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to eat less meat.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to go to the farmer’s market more

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

 

Dear Cherie,

I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.

 

dear future people (:

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.
