Dear tomorrow,

It is currently May of 2018 and our planet is being pushed to its limits. Our population is increasing, and because of our society’s obsession with growth, we are using more natural resources than ever. Our industries are polluting our planet and our people are living unsustainably. I fear that we will continue to abuse our planet to the point of inhabitability. No other species has had as much of an impact as us. But if we can destroy our planet, I believe we can also find new ways of helping the planet, so that generations after you can enjoy life here on earth.

I hope that my generation will discover and implement a way for everyone to live and operate sustainably, and without waste. While some visionaries are working towards that goal, the rest of our population needs to be on board to changing the way they live and operate. I fear that a majority of our population is too apathetic or cynical to care to change. But hopefully they realize they need to before it’s too late.

I promise to make changes where I can and encourage others too as well. I also promise to work to bring sustainable change on a large scale by working with organizations that aim to do so as well.

I hope we succeed.

Delia Montoya

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.

 

Dear X—, Dear A—,

As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

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.

 

I pledge to use less plastic.

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

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”.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My promise is to continue to dedicate my life, my business, and my future to creating cultures that embrace environmental action not only for our own good, but the good of the countless other species hurting from climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

Dear Brady,

I will work everyday to combat climate change for your today, for your tomorrow!
