Dear Me of Tomorrow,

Right now everything is going smoothly, There’s no drama, no money problems, life seems okay..

But behind our own beings, there’s a ton that’s going on. The average global temperature is rising and if the global temperature keeps rising at it’s current rate, by the end of the 21st century, the earth’s lower atmosphere could rise to more than 7.2 Degrees Fahrenheit. (Source for that info ) That’s crazy! Obviously we need to do something…

On a side note, deforestation isn’t helping. It’s what we call a Negative Feedback Loop. This means that the cycle just keeps going on and on, hurting itself rather than fixing itself. Here’s the catch. The temperature is  causing too many forest fires. The increased temperatures are affecting the forests. The increasing temperatures causing forest fires. When tree’s get burnt, they release Carbon Dioxide. It goes into our atmosphere, and there are LESS TREES, since they were burnt or cut, to take in that Carbon Dioxide, making it breathable air.Since they can no longer do that, too much Carbon Dioxide is in the atmosphere, temperatures increase again, and the cycle starts over.Here, this is easier. Trees cut/burnt → Release Carbon Dioxide → No trees to take in the Carbon Dioxide → More Carbon Dioxide = More heat, more heat = More forest fires, then the cycle starts over. This is a huge problem.

I assume that if we plant more trees to make up for it, that the Carbon Dioxide will be leveled back to it’s normal rate, and that trees, our air, and our temperatures will be saved. I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden. Our apple tree in the front yard will contribute as well. I promise to myself (you) That I (we) will contribute more to taking care of our tree’s by raising awareness, and planting more trees.

Sincerely,

You

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

Dear Elliott,

We’re moving into uncertain times, and your dad and I worry. A lot. But you’re keeping us going. You’re pushing us to make better choices and not give up.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

Dear future generations,

Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening.

 

To the future generations,

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

To my children,

I am working with 350.org on shutting down the coal and unconventional gas industries in our country because I cannot think of a more direct way to protect you, the food, water and biodiversity we all love and rely on.
