Dear people of 2050,

Today, we are seeing a global pandemic that has affected our lives and hopefully our future. Today, we have been ordered to continue to stay indoors, to wear masks at all times outside, and to practice social distancing. This has impacted our environment, especially towards air pollution. Right now because of low travel, our air is cleaner than this time last year. The Earth can breath as throughout the world NO2 and CO2 are reportedly down. This could be the beginning of a new start. I hope in the year 2050, we have taken the global threat of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions seriously. I hope for higher gas mileage in cars, more green public transportation and solar panels abundance in every roof. According to a Harvard study, exposure to air pollution may increase the mortality rate of Covid-19 patients and according to Helsinki-based Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air this decrease in air quality may reduce up to 11k  premature deaths. I hope this unintended action leading to unintended consequences will become permanent. I hope to see a cleaner, greener future, where we can save more lives and keep the planet healthy. I believe in 2050, my hopes would be a reality. I can see it now.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I’m not allowed to talk about climate change around family; as my mom warned me, “climate change is not something that people think about in Mississippi.” But I’m worried for my family’s future.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to educate others TODAY.

 

Dear Tristan,

I am doing this to protect you, the food, water, air and biodiversity of a country that I love.

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

Dear Future Earth,

I promise to promote the growth of clean energy, like solar… For the sake of my grandchildren.

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

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

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to go DEEP GREEN

 

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.
