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

More Messages to the Future

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear old dude Mårten,

I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

To my precious children

I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

Dear Tomorrow,

I have solar and will be getting an electric car next week

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age
