Dear future self,

I’ve learned a lot this semester about the horrible impacts that we have had on the planet. Our carbon emissions are adding to global warming, ocean acidification, more intense natural disasters, and so much more. After taking Global Environment, I realized that there were a lot of things that I did not know about our impact on the environment. I believe that a class like global environment should be added to the core curriculum in colleges and even added in high school and middle school classes. I believe these are important things for people to start learning about at a younger age, and everyone should know about our impact on the environment. I’m still not completely sure what I want to do with my life yet, but if I am able to educate the youth about important things like this, that would be very important. My goal is to decrease the amount of water I use as well as the amount of electricity. Another goal of mine is to eat more plant based products and local food and produce. Though my diet does not really consist of meat other than seafood sometimes, I do eat a lot of processed foods. I could definitely eat more plant based foods and cut off all meat completely. Moreover, I want to vote people into office who have climate plans and goals that will help to combat climate change. I hope to achieve these goals by the year 2050.

Dear Future Self,

I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.


Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.


To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.


Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.


Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.


To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?


Dear Tanuj,

The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.


Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.


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 My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.


To my daughter,

The climate is quite dynamic these days. Dhaka has dust and warm in this spring.


Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
