Dear Tomorrow,

I personally did all I could to make the world a better place for you. I was far from alone in the effort. We’ve had to contend with obstacles like ignorance and greed (that did its best to foster ignorance). The struggle isn’t over and while I hope we’re on the winning side because good is supposed to triumph over evil, at this point I don’t know what you’ll have to face, if indeed there are any human beings or life of any kind, for that matter, left to face anything worthwhile. So: good luck!

More Messages to the Future

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear Lillyana,

I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.

 

I promise to plant more flowers.

 

Dear Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.

 

Hallo Clara,

Was wohl der Klimawandel im Jahr 2050 macht? und wer gerade in der Politik ist? Bei uns macht der Klimawandel gerade Vollgas und an der Macht ist Angela Merkel, seit 16 Jahren
What will climate change do in 2050? and who is in politics right now? Climate change is at full throttle here and Angela Merkel has been in power for 16 years.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.

 

Dear Brady,

Dear Me,

Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.

 

Dear Future Me,

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.
