Dear my future self,

It is fall semester 2020 and you’re about to finish taking a Global Climate Change course. I hope that in 30 years you’ve done what you can to make less of a carbon footprint in the world. I hope you’re sharing what you know and are passing down good habits to your children and grandchildren so that eco-consciousness is being passed down through generations. I hope people that care about the environment have been put into office and are doing what they can to fight climate change and people that are against it. I hope the United States has moved into a less consumeristic society and we’re being more eco-conscious of our spending and of our electricity. I hope the automobile industry has moved into full electric or that US public transportation has gotten sustainably better.  I pray that our waters are less polluted, our air quality is clean year round. I pray that we’re not experiencing crazy weather change, and our forests are fuller and greener. I’m hopeful for the future, the best I can do now is wait and see.

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

Dear Before The Flood team,

We can all be aware and sensitized to the problem, so that we are ready to embrace the solutions that will come our way. In doing so, we can all be part of the solution.

 

For my children,

If we haven’t done enough and the world you’re living on is apocalyptic or if you’re living on another planet then I’m deeply sorry and just know that I believe in you and I know that you are both strong and smart enough to handle anything.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

Dear Nephew,

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

To my daughter,

The climate is quite dynamic these days. Dhaka has dust and warm in this spring.

 

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.
