Dear Gorasia descendants,

It is 22:44 on 2nd March 2017.

I am writing to you from my university library, in between learning how to get a 1st class grade on an essay in a subject that I hope will rise to greater prominence and acceptance than it is today – that is environmental law. Setting hard laws rather than soft laws to enforce regulations in Treaty so that Nation States are obliged to cooperate (it really is sad that they don’t take initiative from their own affinity to our great planet Earth).

Earlier today I got laughed at for suggesting that climate change is more urgent now than ever, they replied with “it’s all propaganda”. Meanwhile, in reality, scientists and recorders have stated that we have just come off the back of what was the warmest year in recorded history (2016). When I was a child I wondered where the fumes from cars went, now, at the age of 20, I spend every day of my life trying to figure out ways in which we can collectively reduce the implications of said climate change. I say reduce because we as a species have already plucked so much of the goodness from our planet and its atmosphere. So, from this day on, I will not take my car to work: I will cycle; I will not use coal and fossil energy: I will use solar, reusable energy; I will do everything in my power to prevent the greed of governments from deforesting areas so crucial as ecosystems to the animals, plants and trees that make our planet the beauty it is.

I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet in the hope that the day never comes where we have to ration for food because all the farms’ crops have rotted with smog in the air, or my great-grandchildren aren’t able to see Elephants with tusks or Polar Bears in general because greed has led my fellow Humans to remove the tusks for Ivory and infiltrate the Arctic for oil. If I can play a role in preventing this, and much more, from happening, I believe the world will be a better, safe place for the generation reading this in the future to come.

Sincerely,

Puneet Gorasia (your hero) x

More Messages to the Future

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

 

Caro me stesso,

Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

Dear Future,

I will use less plastic.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The transformation of human consciousness

 

Dear Nephew,

I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.

 

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?

 

Dear Alanna and Valeria,

I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.
