Dear Me of Tomorrow,

In the future, I would like to preserve Lake Champlain in upstate New York. I know that you might not know what that is but it’s a lake that I hold dear. My grandparents used to live there before they moved down south to Florida. I don’t want that lake to be polluted because there are too many pretty places that have been destroyed in the world. Has this place been contaminated by waste and/or other things left over from human “progress”?

In the year 2016 it was the hottest year on record, seeing as it was 0.94 degrees in Celsius and 1.69 in Fahrenheit [above normal]. I know why this is: people are burning trees. Trees take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen but when trees are burned they just release more carbon dioxide. Also, once the tress are burned up there will be less trees to take in the Co2. This leaves the Co2 and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere where it will heat up the Earth causing global warming.

I hope that Lake Champlain doesn’t dry out or get polluted beyond repair. I promise that I will not burn a living tree. I won’t litter. I will put trash in the trash can and recycle as much as possible. I will protect the animals that need me both here as well as in Lake Champlain.

Love.

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

Dear Valentina & Luis,

You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

I love you Earth.

 

To my daughters,

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