Dear me in 2050,

Dear William,

This letter is addressed to me. By this time, it is 2050 and I’m sure the world has changed exponentially. Today it is December 7th, 2021. Over the past 10 years climate activism has reached an all-time high. This has given me optimism on our future. I remember when I was 7 and there was a select few speaking about the climate and the issues facing humanity. Today, with the help of social media and proper advocacy real change is being made. Unfortunately, there is still much that needs to be done. That is why I am making these promises to myself today. I promise to carpool every opportunity I can from this point on, I promise to make active steps to reduce my water consumption every day. Whether it be not leaving a running faucet or taking shorter showers. I promise to rely less on meat and other foods that use thousands of gallons of water to produce. I promise to continue the compost in my backyard, I promise to buy a fuel efficient or electric car, I promise to implement solar panels on my property when I own one, and finally I promise to stay educated on the environmental problems surrounding our world as well as spreading awareness to those around me. I hope with the emergence of new technology we have found proper solutions to environmental issues around the world. I hope you have kept these promises and have lived a good life.

William Farrell

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.


Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.
