Dear my future self,

First of all, I am sorry for making you climb the mountain back up to how the world and environment should look like. Now that it is 2050, I hope it is in a better place. To help with this here are some things I am going to do. First of all, I am going to eat less meat. Eating less meat is one of the top things you can do to help the environment. I hope when you are reading this, you are almost a full time vegetarian. Secondly, I am going to join a beach clean up crew each summer. Although the clean up job I am going to do will be very miniscule to the whole world, it is one more person helping. Without beach watches and clean up crews, there will be no beach that I can go to. I am keeping a promise to you, that I will advocate and push for a better future for our world and environment. Lastly, I want to say thank you. Thank you for finally making the effort and thank you for giving our world the second chance it deservers. As we know, there is no Planet B.

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.


Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.


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.


Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.
