I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

Dear Me of 2050,

Each second, ½ acre of forest is cut down so that land can be used for monoculture. It is predicted that at this rate, there will be nothing left of the rainforests in just 100 years from now. When these trees are removed and burned, extra Co2 is released into the air. With fewer trees to absorb it and turn it into oxygen, it lingers in the atmosphere and blocks heats from escaping into space. The average temperature of Earth has risen 15.4 °C (59.72 °F) since 2000. I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none. This will help to reduce the greenhouse gas level in the atmosphere lower and the Earth’s temperature. I hope that by the time you read this, a change has been made and the Earth is a clean, green place once more.

Sincerely,

Jed  H.

More Messages to the Future

 

Son,

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.

 

To the future,

Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Dear Future Generations,

Dear Future Generations,

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Love, help and build a future in unison that benefits and protects the whole world.

 

Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?

 

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.

 

To my grandchildren,

Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.

 

To my future Niece,

While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.
