Dear Niece,

Your father and I grew up in a beautiful county and we were blessed to be able to breath fresh and clean air, have beaches close to our house, be surrounded by amazing tall redwood trees, and be able to walk through the enormous forest. This place is called Humboldt and we will forever cherish how it has continue to provide such a unique scenery but a few things have started to change. We have experienced a lot more floods and the area where your auntie lives got flooded and she had to evacuate. The ocean levels have increase more and where there used to be sand is now covered in water. I am currently in college and your dad is back home in Humboldt but whenever I go back, I can see the changes. I can see the changes here in San Jose as well. One day it will be hot and the next day its either cloudy or rainy. This pattern has been going on for a while now and in my opinion, we aren’t doing much to help reduce the climate change occurring.

We are using coal more than ever and other oils to keep our cars running, electricity, energy, and the amount of greenhouse gases is only increasing. All of these factors have greatly impacted our planet and global warming is happening as I write this letter to you. People are taking advantage of the freedom of speech right and utilizing that platform to speak out against global warming. I am a believer in this concept and it astonishes me how people do not believe it’s happening when the impacts of it are happening right in front of us. The weather is constantly changing, ice glaciers are melting, ocean levels are rising, and people still deny it.

Global warming has been talked about several times in the news, at school, in home, etc. It has been discussed that we should start using renewable sources to lessen the impacts done to the planet and hopefully in the future (now ,when you read it) we are using more renewable sources and the effects have decreased. I still want my future kids and family to witness the beauty of not just Humboldt but other places as well that I had the opportunity to see. I have always tried to not litter to keep the environment clean and do my part in helping the world but I know I need to do way more than that and I will try to do so. Hopefully you are just as environmentally conscience or even more so than I and that you do your part in helping our Earth progress.

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Paz e bem

Vivamos a vida com intensidade, Não nos importando a localidade.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

To my future Niece,

While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.

 

dear future people (:

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to be creative – make art!

 

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.

 

Dear Future Cassie,

I promise to be successful and help save the environment.

 

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.

 

I pledge to stop using plastic bags.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.
