Dear Michael in the future,

Dear me of tomorrow. The wildfires today kills plants and trees and that creates less oxygen and that is bad for the environment. Also, it creates more CO2 and that traps more heat in the atmosphere and then global warming starts and it then that makes more wildfires and also it will melt more ice caps and then less heat will bounce back into space and then more heat won’t even be able to escape and it will repeat forever. If we don’t try to use fewer fossil fuels, we will end the earth and everything on it. I will make sure to make myself use renewable energy instead of fossil fuels so I can help the earth.

Sincerely.

More Messages to the Future

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.

 

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.

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Dear Nieces and Nephews,

I tried.

 

Dear fellow human,

May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

Dear Isaiah,

I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.
