Dear future self,

Remember that the greenhouse gas effect works by allowing the sun’s rays to enter the Earth’s atmosphere but keeps the heat from escaping back into space. Going with that factor, I promise that I will be walking more often to help reduce the amount of carbon dioxide I emit into the atmosphere and eating less meat (even though I love fried chicken!). Co2 is emitted into the air when the burning of fossil fuels for heat, electricity, and transportation takes place. This years average temperature is 59.8 degrees F. Hopefully this number will stay roughly the same. Also, I hope that everybody will catch on to what I am doing and help save the world from climate change little by little!

More Messages to the Future

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Levon,

I hope, as your father, I’ve done enough to instill within you how science is a wonderful adventure.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

Dear Devon and Chloe

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

Future Self & Ka’iulani,

We promise to reduce the amount of carbon we use on a daily basis.

 

Dear Madeleine,

First of all I hope we succeeded in our dream that yours is a better world than the world of 2021. Today, the forests are burning, the sea levels are rising and wild weather is everywhere. But we are working hard and I’m confident we will succeed.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!
