Dear People of the Future,

As it stands right now in 2018, things do not look so promising. Due to excessive anthropogenic activities, climate change is becoming more and more of a serious issue. However, there are still many active global warming deniers who state that the issue is insignificant (when compared to other problems facing the world). By the year 2030 or 2050, it is my hope that we have fully embraced renewable energy sources for power and electricity, or perhaps, have found a way to generate or harness clean zero point energy which exists throughout the fabric of space. In addition, traditional fuel burning energy sources like oil/petroleum and nuclear power will become antiquated with only passing reference in the history books. It is also my wish, by this time, that most of the cars on the road primarily run on hydrogen, or electricity. In conclusion, I can only hope that by this time (in 2030/2050), public consciousness is open and well aware on the issue of climate change, making the necessary changes to adapt to society’s pressing needs by doing everything they can to mitigate the immediate concerns facing our planet.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Makena,

Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.

 

To the wonderful children of our family – Elayna, Julianna, and James –

There is no issue more important to your future and your friends’ future than stemming climate change.

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

Dear Future Grandchildren,

I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.
