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 Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

To my future children,

Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative.

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Dear Ya’Ash,

There are many paths to Truth, but regardless of your faith or ideology, one truth is above all else: Life must continue.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

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.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to clean the earth.

 

AMORI MIEI EMMA DOMINGA E MAMMA AURELIE

Mamma e Papà cercano insieme sempre di darti il meglio però anche tu dovrai fare la tua parte nel mondo.

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.
