Dear son or daughter,

The world we are in today is real nice, even though we are fighting to stop climate change. The conditions will get worse, but since we cannot feel the effects immediately, it is hard to get people to help out. Even though our future seems grim to environmental majors like myself, I have full belief that your life will be full of the same joys as mine. I believe we will figure out this complex problem, because there are too many people who do care for our planet. If this is not the case though, I want to say I am sorry for the tremendous amount I have contributed to the problem. I promise from here on forward that I will do the best I can to take care of the planet.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

dear future people (:

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Dear Tristan,

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

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

To my Maria and her children,

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.
