Dear future self,

Hello to the 44 year old guy reading this message!

Plants are the foundation to slowing down global warming, as they eat up CO2 and are storage for CO2 as well. With the death of every plant, more CO2 is released into the atmosphere quicker. Thus, to help the environment you’re living in, I pledge to plant more plants, and donate to organizations who can plant them for me, like TeamTrees.

More Messages to the Future

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Hola Cariño,

Life is not easier being a believer but I would not have picked another path. Thanks to my Faith I found my passion to work to stop climate change for your future. Now go play outside and breathe clean air. Dios te bendiga.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

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 Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.
